Diamond Head is a 15 minute drive from the Treehouse Retreat. Its iconic scenery and stunning beach and nature walks make this the most popular place to visit in Crowdy Bay National Park.
Once you’ve ogled the ocean and the blackened pillars of Split Rock from the beach, there is so much more to explore. You can take your choice from several hiking tracks, including the 4.8km loop walk via Indian Head with its panoramic views of coast, mountains and forest, or the shorter Mermaid Lookout track. And don’t forget to pick up your wildflowers identification brochure, bird and fauna lists from the onsite office before you head out.
With the correct National Parks and Wildlife Service permits you can even 4WD on the magnificent South Beach and pop up at Camden Head! (Ask us for more details.) You’ll find gas barbecues, picnic shelters and outdoor showers right next to the beach, this is a perfect place to relax or meet up with friends.
