Park features

Halifax Bay Wetlands National Park is recognised by the World Conservation Union (IUCN) as an area ‘of concern’. The coastal lowland area supports salt meadow/herbfield vegetation with highly-saline alluvial soils. The wetlands provide a habitat for wildlife, including migratory birds, and they are nursery grounds for fish, mud crabs and prawns. There are two separate shady camping areas in open woodland on the banks of creeks.
