Booti Booti is a Worimi Aboriginal word meaning “plenty of honey.”

Booti Booti National Park sits on an 8km peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and beautiful Wallis Lake, near Forster. Explore the beaches, walking tracks, lookouts, and coastal rainforest on a day trip or camp overnight.

Scenically located between the coast and a tranquil lake, on the NSW mid-north coast, Booti Booti National Park takes in scenic headlands, beautiful beaches, refreshing rainforest, and 11km of estuarine foreshore. The name comes from “butibuti,” the local Worimi Aboriginal word meaning “plenty of honey.”

Plenty is certainly a common theme here – plenty of hiking, swimming, birdwatching, and whale watching in the winter as they migrate along the coast. There are plenty of opportunities to settle down in a picnic spot beneath the paperbarks, and plenty of surfing and mountain biking for the young at heart.

The beaches are an enduring favourite, with families and sun-lovers turning weekends into energetic gatherings. Add in terrific driving tours and some truly stunning lookouts like the one at Cape Hawke, and you have a park that appeals across the board. Booti Booti has plenty for everyone.

An amazing place to hike, and simply explore. Walking along both the coast and the lakeside in the same walk on a large loop was very fun, however it does have the downside of being steep in some places, and not accessible for the disabled. But, being a national park, that's expected

I stopped for a picnic lunch with my female partner at Green Point Sailing Club.OK it was a midweek winter's day.There was only a couple of other people there. Picnic tables and toilets available. The whole area is protected from most winds and a summer place for children A small boat canoe kayak can be launched from the shore. The scenery is great. A small part of Oz to be used and appreciated.
