  • The campsite is a great place to explore the National Park. The bush walks are great fun with spectacular views of the coastline. If you rise early just before sunrise you can watch the kangaroos feed...  more »
  • As seen on the current Qantas safety demonstration video! We headed to Cape Hillsborough to catch the wallabies and roos at dawn - absolutely stunning area, full of opportunities to walk solo or with ...  more »
  • We were unfortunately only in the course of the day on the ground, so that we no longer met the kangaroos on the beach. The beach itself is but also very nice and there were hardly any people there (in spite of a campsite right on the beach) except us. There is a large car park and toilet facilities. We decided to try out the hiking trails and climb the cliffs. Unfortunately, the trails are not very well maintained, after a short time, it looked like it would not continue. Fortunately, we are running around the tree which lay across the way and have enjoy so the wonderful view from the top. Caution, it is relatively steep and exhausting, definitely not for everyone, and footwear would be all right.

  • This place is absolutely beautiful with loads of fun for the kid's and kangaroos feeding on the beach. If you haven't been go see this place. Awesome! !!!
  • Need to reach there before Dawn, so that u can have moments with Wallabies on the beach. Some of the Wallabies are friendly that u could even touch them n take a photo. Then u can feel the beauty of the nature on the sandy beach. There are walking trails to lookout as well.
  • We went for a run around the trails and along the beach and crossed the causeway over to Wedge Island. Very Scenic with great views along the Andrew's Point Trail. Cape Hillsborough has more to offer than just Kangaroos on the Beach 😁
  • I love how theres wildlife all around its nice quiet and a really awsome naturistic place more and more peaple have to go its awsome u have nice cool breezy veiws nothin bad to say
  • Nice spot to have a bbq and a cold drink in the shade. Many bbqs avalible to use in a well set out area. The beach has a great outlook.
