  • This is one of my favourite short hikes in the area - walking over a mix of boardwalk and trail. Some parts of the trail pretty muddy. But it's a lovely little hike.  more »
  • I hiked in here with my 7 year old, who, with a little prompting, enjoyed the walk. After I pointed out the beaver activity, frogs (toads?) singing, and giant slugs along the path, he began to look to...  more »
  • Always an amazing hike through swamp and sea. Disappointed with no marine life. Walk was as beautiful as ever.  more »
  • A beautiful park with amazing views and easy trails. Main trail is very well groomed and easy to walk (possible to even push a more rugged stroller/buggy/wheelchair on it). Beyond the main trail (where you need to go for the really good views) the trail transitions to a more moderate walk on an established trail. Can be muddy and rocks/roots can be slippery in the rain. Walked every inch of trail in the park (with lots of stops to enjoy the scenery/relax as well a explore some of the rocky islands) and was back to my car in about 1.5 - 2 hours - very easy to explore in a short amount of time while traveling through. Definitely worth a visit if you are on the Sunshine Coast. One of my new favourite places..
  • Easy hike through a bog, along the ocean, and through the rainforests. Beautiful. Has some mosquitoes near the bog, but otherwise really nice trail. It's interesting to read about the history of the area on the placards along the trail, like why it's called smuggler cove.
  • Very cool wooded park with rocky outcroppings. Water is teaming with starfish and other sea creatures. A bit of a hike but not strenuous. Not accessable for those with disabilities.
  • Easy walk thru the woods and over marshes. Easy marked trails. Beautiful and scenic view points. Might catch a bald eagle perched on a tree as we did.
  • One of our favorite parks in the world. It's so pretty, peaceful and just life giving. It's a real gem!
