Discover Conway National Park: Rainforests, Beaches and Whitsunday Views

Conway National Park, a peaceful escape 30 kilometres east of Proserpine, offers a scenic blend of rainforest-clad hills, secluded beaches and breathtaking views of the Whitsunday Islands.

This park protects the largest area of lowland tropical rainforest in Queensland outside Tropical North Queensland. Towering hoop pines line the coastal ridges and damp gullies, while rugged cliffs create a dramatic 35-kilometre backdrop to the Whitsunday Passage and islands.

Explore the park’s beauty on foot or by boat. Walk or kayak to the secluded Swamp Bay bush camping area, nestled beside a pristine pebbly beach overlooking Daydream Island. A network of walking tracks caters to all abilities, starting from the Conway National Park day-use area, Mount Rooper and Coral Beach car parks.

For a more challenging adventure, take on the Conway Circuit, a multi-use trail suitable for walkers and mountain bike riders. Hike to Mount Rooper lookout and be rewarded with panoramic views of Whitsunday Islands including Hamilton, Dent, Long and Henning. The effort to reach the secluded Coral Beach is worthwhile for the stunning vista.
