    Park features

    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.
