A good days fishing, with plenty more for tomorrow

85,000 hectares of estuaries, creeks, rivers and lakes nearly all available for recreational fishing with little restriction. Batemans Marine Park is zoned to protect marine biodiversity while supporting a wide range of recreational and commercial activities. 

These beautiful waters are home to a very diverse range of marine life and habitats, including dolphins, seals, sharks and rays. This makes for some very exciting marine activities; at Montague Island you can even snorkel with the seals!

Gulaga National Park

Home of the Mother Mountain

Gulaga National Park was created in January 2001. It covers an area of 4,673 hectares.

Gulaga (Mount Dromedary) and the surrounding landscape have great spiritual significance to local Aboriginal people, particularly Aboriginal women.

The park also incorporates the former Wallaga Lake National Park and in 2006 the park was handed back to its traditional Yuin owners in an historic agreement.
