About Mouth of Baffle Creek

    Park features

    The park protects a variety of habitats ranging from estuarine mangroves to coastal she-oaks and low open woodlands with acacias and eucalypts. Birdlife abounds and this is a peaceful retreat for self-sufficient visitors.

    Looking after the park

    You can help protect the park and forest so it can be enjoyed now and in the future by observing these guidelines:

    • Everything in the park (living or dead) is protected. Do not take or interfere with plants, animals, soil or rocks.
    • Domestic animals, such as dogs, are not permitted within conservation and national parks. Leave all pets at home.
    • Keep to existing dune access tracks to the camping area; shortcutting and venturing off the track creates impacts such as erosion and soil compaction.
    • Use toilets if available or bring a portable toilet. If bush toileting, ensure all faecal matter and toilet paper is properly buried at least 15cm deep and 100m from tracks, camp sites and waterways. Bag and carry out disposable nappies and sanitary products.
    • Take your rubbish home for appropriate disposal. Do not hang rubbish bags from trees or tents. Never bury or leave rubbish in the park.
    • When bathing or washing cooking equipment or clothes, always wash at least 100m from streams and lakes. Waterways and the ocean should be kept free of all pollutants including soap, detergents, shampoo, sunscreens and food scraps.
    • Contact the Queensland Government Wildlife Hotline to report: wildlife incidents, marine animal strike, marine stranding or an injured, sick or dead turtle, dolphin or whale.

    See the guidelines on caring for parks for more information about protecting our environment and heritage in parks.
