About Finucane Island
Finucane Island National Park is part of the Australian mainland. It is an ‘island’ surrounded by rivers and watercourses and is only accessible by boat. The park protects 7610 hectares of the Gulf Plains, a mosaic of estuarine wetlands, salt flats with sand couch grasslands and mangroves fringing rivers and channels. The wetlands cover most of the park providing important fisheries and waterbird habitat. Seagrass surrounding the park provides habitat for dugongs.
- Open fires are prohibited in the national park.
- Limit the spread of weeds and pathogens. Ensure clothes, footwear, gear, boats and vehicles are clean and free of seeds and soil before arriving at the park. Remove, wrap and place seeds in your rubbish bag.
- Domestic animals are not permitted in the national park. Leave your pets at home.
- Rubbish facilities are not provided in the park. Do not bury rubbish—take it with you when you leave.
- Everything in the park, living or dead, is protected. Please leave everything as you found it.
