A visit to Canunda is not complete without stopping by the Canunda National Park. It makes for the perfect day trip to recharge and rejuvenate in nature. The park’s stunning features make it an amazing location; it boasts of natural bushland, limestone cliffs, and coastal dunes all of which invite the intrepid traveller to come to experience some adventure.

Take in the sights at the park, the breathtaking coastline views just beg for photos. For beach lovers, nothing compares to the Canunda beach experience which is perfect for surfing. However, they are not ideal for swimming because of the strong waves.

Fishing is another popular activity; there are 40 kilometres of beautiful coastline to explore by boat as you fish with the whole family.

Other enjoyable outdoor activities within the park include bushwalking and four-wheel driving across the coastal dunes.
