Park of the Month

Hallett Cove Conservation Park, February 2017

2 February 2017

A park that takes you back in time to when the ice age was here, with glacial pavements, fossils, and geology dating back millions of years. The cliffs and mountains have survived the harshest of storms and been pounded by the winds and sea. It’s a story of survival and resilience, and when you visit, your footprints will be part of its history. 

Hallett Cove Conservation Park is February’s Park of the Month! It is recognized globally for its geology and archaeological history. We have worked with the Rangers to get their insider knowledge about where to go and what to do in Hallett Cove Conservation Park across all four seasons. Our 40 things to do in Hallett Cove Conservation Park brochure (print here) will have you hiking alongside ancient glacial pavements dating back 280 million years; exploring chocolate-coloured rock formations and rock pools full of life; listening out for frogs at Waterfall Creek; observing the famous Sugarloaf mountain; and snorkeling at the base of Black Cliff. There are so many things for families to do in this unique Park. For a map of Hallett Cove Conservation Park click here.

To celebrate the Rangers have organised some exciting opportunities for families throughout February including snorkeling, guided walks, a photography course, and exploring rock pools with experts. For times, registration details and more information head over to DEWNRs website.
