Head just 25 minutes north from Yeppoon to discover the lush forests of Byfield and surrounding nature reserves.
The Byfield National Park and State Forest abound with wonderful scenery rolling sand dunes, beaches, swamps, rainforest-edged creeks and rugged mountains. This area is the exclusive home of the rare Byfield Fern (Bohemia Serrata).
Byfield is rich with diversity and forms one of the largest unspoiled eco-systems on the east coast of Australia. The region’s major waterway, Waterpark Creek, is also host to ancient and towering remnant rainforest with many resident native birds and animals.
The small village of Byfield is a haven for craft and nature lovers. In the surrounding State Forest you'll find picturesque water holes, picnic and camping areas, and a range of accommodation options are available.
See for yourself!
