A strip of national parks follows this coastline. An icon is Montague Island, a place for seals, whales and little penguins. Further south is fascinating Ben Boyd National Park, with its whaling history and heritage lighthouses - the coastal walks are spectacular. Be sure to sample the local seafood, grown wild in pristine South Coast waters.
