Warringine Park - Coastal Section


The coastal section provides an amazing opportunity for visitors to explore the dynamic shoreline environment found around Westernport. 

A spectacular boardwalk between Jacks Beach and Hastings makes this marine environment uniquely accessible for visitors. High tide walks are a highlight when sea water surrounds the boardwalk flooding the mangrove forests and sapphire herb land.

Opportunities for picnicking are provided at Jack’s Beach and a great place to access the boardwalk.

Warringine is also well connected to more terrestrial environments including the woodland areas found either side of Warringine Creek. Further details of this sections can be found in the Warringine Park – Creek section listing.
