Rosedale

Part of the Discovery Coast, Rosedale is a quaint country town located off the Lowmead Road. The short one kilometre detour into this historic town (which dates back to 1892) is certainly worthwhile.

The township has a friendly country hotel and a general store which boasts a garden model railway. In the park there is an excellent amenities block with wheelchair access. By the electric rail line is a large water tower, a reminder of the steam era.

Rosedale: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Mouth of Baffle Creek Conservation Park


Mouth of Baffle Creek Conservation Park protects the mouth of one of Queensland's few remaining undisturbed coastal rivers. The northern shore of the creek estuary features sandy beaches backed by low, open casuarina woodlands, with paperbark woodlands further inland. The southern side of the estuary is lined with mangroves.

Experience the quiet solitude of this coastal park. Go birdwatching or fishing, or stroll along the beach. Camp under the casuarinas behind the dunes overlooking the estuary and sandy beach. Take drinking water and a fuel stove. No facilities are provided. Generators are not allowed. Camping fees apply.

Broadwater Conservation Park


Nestled on the coast between Baffle Creek and Deepwater National Park, Broadwater Conservation Park is a quiet retreat for self-sufficient campers. This small diverse coastal remnant contains casuarina woodland on the foredunes, mangrove-lined creeks, and mixed eucalypt open forest and paperbark woodland further inland. Between June and October you may see migrating whales breaching out at sea.

Go birdwatching or fishing. Stroll along the beach as soldier crabs skittle into holes. Explore life behind the dunes in mangrove-lined creeks.

Camping in the Broadwater area (Mitchell Creek) is closed until 30 September 2013. Vehicular access to Rules Beach is not available due to severe dune erosion. Pedestrian and vessel access is available and the park is open for day use.
