What's special?Baffle Creek is one of Queensland’s few remaining undisturbed coastal rivers. The creek’s estuary is protected on both sides by conservation parks. Mouth of Baffle Creek Conservation Park 2 is on the northern shore.
This small coastal remnant features sandy beaches backed by low, open, she-oak woodlands and paperbark woodlands further inland. On the other side of the estuary, Mouth of Baffle Creek Conservation Park 1 is mainly mangrove woodland.
Exploring Mouth of Baffle CreekThis is a peaceful retreat for self-sufficient visitors. Go birdwatching or fishing. If you swim, remember this beach is unpatrolled and beware of marine stingers between October and May.
Camp under the coastal she-oaks behind the dunes overlooking the estuary and sandy beach. Take drinking water and a fuel stove. No facilities are provided. Generators are not allowed. Pay your fees at the self-registration station near the beach access point at Rules Beach.
