Cape Hillsborough Nature Tourist Park Review

Cape Hillsborough Nature Tourist Park is an absolute great location for a family or group to enjoy the natural beauty and a great place to just unwind.

Kangaroos are abundant at Cape Hillsborough Nature Tourist Park and you will wake up to them grazing and sunning themselves along the stunning beach.  They make a fantastic photo opportunity.

There are amazing nature walks that will have you in the thick of the national park, so make sure you bring a good set of shoes and mozzie repellent, but that won’t keep the bush turkeys at bay!  Fishing is another highlight of the area so make sure you bring a rod.

The park offers great kids activities and this is truly where they shine, giving you a well earned break while you’re kids have fun, there is even mini golf!  

There is a great pool to enjoy or sun yourself around but remember it does get busy if not booked out over times like easter, so book in early.
