Byfield National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Covering just under 9000 ha this difficult to access park north of Yeppoon abuts the Shoalwater Bay restricted military training area, which also has major ecological management plans in place to minimise the effects of bombing of and landing of water craft in sensitive areas.

The Byfield park is mostly made up of massive parabolic sand dunes some reaching 6 km inland. The northern part of the park has granite mountain peaks (Mt Atherton) and eucalypt forests and in some locations remnant rainforests. The sand dune areas are covered mostly in coastal heath plants. Access to the beach areas is by 4wd only. Some sandy areas can be difficult to negotiate due to high sand dunes.

Fishing is very popular in the park especially at Corio Bay, other locations of interest include Sandy Point for day trippers, Corio Headlands for its views over the park and the Queen Mary Sand Blow which some rainforest.

Camping is permitted please obtain permits before entering the park. Some facilities are available, no open fires are allowed.
