Welcome to Loch Sport & Lakes National Park
The small, bushy holiday town of Loch Sport – where wallabies graze serenely on residents’ front lawns – sprawls between the ocean and Lake Victoria. The main road comes to an abrupt halt at Lakes National Park, a narrow strip of coastal bushland surrounded by water. Banksia and eucalyptus woodland are plentiful, along with areas of low-lying heathland and some swampy salt-marsh scrub. In spring the park is carpeted with native wildflowers and has one of Australia’s best displays of native orchids. A loop road through the park provides good vehicle access, and there are well-marked walking trails. Point Wilson, at the eastern tip of the mainland section of the park, is the best picnic spot and a popular gathering place for kangaroos. Industrial-strength mosquito repellent is a must here.
