Green Island Walking Track

An energising, medium level walk to delight both birdwatchers and wildflower enthusiasts. Green Island walking track leads through woodland and heath to a lookout with brilliant views to Smoky Cape Lighthouse in the northern section of Hat Head National Park.

The track leads through groves of paperbarks and grass trees. At the junction with Smoky Cape walking track, turn east, as the path meanders through heathlands dominated by banksias. In spring, the surrounding shrubland erupts with dazzling colour, with exceptional displays of flannel flowers and paper daisies.

Reaching the lookout, gaze across to Green Island, just 100 metres from the coast. Here, you’re most likely to see shore birds such as egrets, spoonbills and pied oystercatchers. Make the most of the fabulous location and enjoy a leisurely picnic, relishing the sweeping coastal views and fresh coastal breezes, before retracing your steps.
