Cape Conran Coastal Park
Change of conditionsAdd change of condition
- There is currently a large amount of kelp on the ramp which may make launching and retrieving boats extremely difficult, especially at low tide. Parks Victoria is monitoring the situation and may attempt to clear the ramp of kelp, depending on contractor availability and weather conditions. at Cape Conran Boat Ramp, Friday 15 February, 2019
Cape Conran Coastal Park has heathlands, wild ocean beaches and banksia woodlands brimming with nectar-feeding birds.
A great park for water activities - enjoy swimming, diving, boating, fishing or rock pooling. Experience the park by foot on the self-guided Cape Conran Nature Trail or the magnificent Dock Inlet and Pearl Point day walks.
The remote Wilderness Coast Walk extends 100km from the eastern shores of Sydenham Inlet in neighbouring Croajingolong National Park. Boat transport may need to be arranged, or low tide required, to safely cross the entrances of Sydenham Inlet and Tamboon Inlet if open to the sea. Call Parks Victoria on 13 1963 to check latest conditions.
West Cape offers the only boat launching ramp in the area. The ramp is regularly subject to sand and kelp. View the webcam images of the boat ramp to check conditions.
