French Island National Park

French Island National Park is a true paradise. Accessible only by passenger ferry, French Island is a haven of peace and serenity.

French Island


Home to a diverse range of wildlife and containing environments ranging from mangrove saltmarsh areas to open woodlands.

Explore the park at leisure by bus, bike or on foot, using the network of public roads and management tracks. There are whole day, half day and shorter walks and rides starting at Tankerton Foreshore Reserve.

Camping is available at the Fairhaven campsite. Located on the west coast foreshore the campsite is in an idyllic natural setting.

Basic toilet facilities and water supplies (purify or boil first) are provided. Open fires are not permitted at any time as the island's vegetation is highly combustible. A portable gas stove, or similar, is essential.

Advance bookings and payment are required year round.
