Description Byfield National Park covers over 15,000 ha. Massive parabolic sand dunes—the oldest reaching 5–6 km inland—occupy most of the southern part of the park. In the north, the rugged pinnacles of The Peaks and Mount Atherton dominate the landscape. Byfield national and conservation parks boast outstanding coastal scenery. These parks conserve large areas of coastal heath growing on low-nutrient dune sands. Tall eucalypt woodlands flourish in sheltered areas and rainforests thrive where there is abundant water. The area also supports many migratory and resident birds. Camping is permitted at three places: Five Rocks camping area in Byfield Conservation Park, and Nine Mile Beach camping area and Scouts Camp at Water Park Point headland in Byfield National Park. Camping permits are required and fees apply. A tag with your booking number must be displayed at your camp site. Corio Bay and Byfield’s beaches are popular fishing destinations. All waters around Byfield are protected marine parks and zoned to balance recreation and commercial use with long-term conservation goals. Farnborough Beach and most of Nine Mile Beach are in a yellow conservation park zone, which allows certain activities and has some limits on line fishing. Corio Bay and the waters east of the yellow zone are, in general use, blue zones.
