Deepwater National Park

Deepwater National Park, just south of Agnes Water, is a beautiful secluded spot packed with unspoilt beaches, four-wheel drive tracks and bush camping. If you love the beach and the bush, and the feeling of truly getting away from it all, then a visit to Deepwater National Park is an absolute must. Whether you only have time for a day trip, or you plan on spending the night (or multiple nights!) make sure you pack the surfboards, drinking water, food, and your sense of adventure.

Safety

The most important piece of safety information to understand is that a high clearance four-wheel drive (4WD) is required for accessing most areas. Conventional vehicles can access the Wreck Rock camping area from the south. Always check park alerts before leaving home. 

Beaches are not patrolled, and care should be taken in and around the water. Sharks, marine stingers (October – May) and strong currents are just some of the dangers to bear in mind.
