A new tour will take walkers through the changing woodland, tea tree groves and rugged headlands of Port Stephens’ Tomaree National Park, offering spectacular coastal views and possible whale sightings.
Held on Saturday, June 6, and Saturday June 13, 2015, the ‘Whale Tales Bush Talk’ will begin at the entrance to Tomaree National Park, off Tomaree Crescent in Boat Harbour, and run from 1-3pm.
The national park is known for its diversity and unique vantage points, offering panoramic views of Port Stephens. Tomaree’s headlands are also the only places in NSW where outcrops of acid volcanic rock can be seen. Morna Point’s time-worn headland features some of the most spectacular basalt dykes and deeply fissured chasms in the park. Now is also a rare opportunity to experience the forest and heathland coming to life after fire. An ideal location for a bushwalk.
The tour will be led by an experienced National Parks and Wildlife Service ranger who will reveal tales of whales, coastal life, and how the environment can quickly recover from fire. Walkers are advised to wear sturdy enclosed shoes and protective clothing, remembering that headlands can be windy, and to bring binoculars and cameras. The walk is not suitable for children under eight years, and children under 15 years must be accompanied by an adult.
