Lincoln National Park
Lincoln National Park is a rugged peninsula with spectacular ocean views, sandy beaches and sheltered camping sites. The park is covered in large expanses of coastal mallee with granite outcrops and extensive sand dunes. The sheltered beaches of Boston Bay contrast with the exposed southern coastline where steep limestone cliffs form an impressive buttress to the open ocean.
