Get away and visit this peaceful park with rainforest-clad hills, secluded beaches and panoramic outlooks.
The Conway National Park covers 22,500ha of land between Mackay and Bowen. It incorporates 35kms of coastline and covers a large peninsula, which is made up of the Conway Range. The National Park surrounds the Whitsunday Passage, and offers great views out across the Whitsundays.
There is a diverse range of plant life within the park, including open forest, mangrove canopy and tropical lowland rainforest. Many ferns and orchids can be found within the National Park as well as a wide range of animals. A common sight during the night is the adorable Proserpine Rock Wallabies.
There are wide ranges of walking trails throughout the Conway National Park, which offer you the chance to experience the diverse landscape. Many of these start from around Airlie Beach and Shute Harbour. And for the more experienced bushwalkers, the newly completed Whitsunday Great Walk takes approximately three days.
There are sign posts at the start of the walks, although you can also get information from the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service which is located across the road from us here at BIG4 Airlie Cove Resort and Caravan Park.
