East Cape is a good spot for a picnic offering gas barbecues and picnic tables. There are also a number of walks from the visitor area.

East Cape Boardwalk

Grade: Easy, via boardwalk
Distance: 0.6km
Time: 1 to 1.5hrs return
Start: East Cape Day Visitor Area

Cape Conran is rich in cultural heritage, both Indigenous and post European. This walk was a joint project of the then National Parks Service and the Moogji Aboriginal Council in Orbost. The boardwalk rounds the East Cape to Cowrie Bay. Along the way interpretive signs give you a glimpse of the uses Indigenous people made of the many resources around the Cape. The boardwalk joins the Nature Trail and a complete loop can be made back to the East Cape Day Visitor Area, or continue on to the West Cape and Salmon Rocks Beach. The Salmon Rocks lookout is part of the Batuluk Cultural Trail and has information on Indigenous midden sites.
