Tracing a path through bushland and remote beaches, you can stop for a spot of fishing along the way. Rare ground parrots and striated field wrens can also be seen from time to time around the forested areas. In spring, the area blooms with wildflowers. Green Cape is an ideal start or end point on the great Light to Light walk, which continues all the way north to Boyds Tower.
