Take a dip in the beautiful running swimming hole or take a bush walk a find the abundance of wildlife including wallabies, rock wallabies, turtles, kookaburras, and even wild brumbies that all live peacefully in a beautiful slice of paradise.

Bowling Green Bay National Park is split into two sections, the Alligator Creek section which is good for swimming or bushwalking and the coastal section, which is good for four wheel driving. You CANNOT swim in the coastal section as there are numerous Saltwater Crocodiles...More
