Wildlife

Native wildlife is abundant throughout this park. Treading carefully and with a torch, evenings make the perfect time meet wallabies, wombats and possums. Visit Parks and Wildlife Services for more information.

Rocky Cape Flora and Fauna

Flora and Fauna

In spring and summer see the hundreds of different plant species in flower, most of them wind, salt and fire tolerant surviving the wild coastal conditions. Many of the 40 orchid species are found in the park, many of which lie dormant underground until fire passes. Image provided by Judith Brown.
