The park encompasses estuaries, sandy beaches, rocky shore, sub-tidal reefs, open ocean and six islands in the Solitary Islands group. It is here where over 550 reef fish species, 90 types of hard coral and 600 molluscs thrive. While most reside year round, others come and go with the seasons. Some from Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef, others from as far south as Tasmania as well as the mighty Humpback whales from Antarctica. It's a real 'fish soup'.
