Cape Conran Coastal Park offers a variety of walks. Shorter walks can be taken around the Cape itself or there are longer walks for the more adventurous.
East Cape is a good spot for for a picnic offering picnic tables and gas barbecues.
The East Cape Boardwalk can be accessed from the car park at Sailors Grave.
Cape Conran is rich in our cultural heritage, both indigenous and post European. The boardwalk was a joint project of the National Parks Service and the Mooji Aboriginal Council in Orbost.
The boardwalk rounds East Cape to Cowrie Bay. Along the way interpretive signs give you a glimpse of the uses indigenous people made of the many resources around the Cape.
From Cowrie Bay a track links to the Nature Trail and a complete loop can be made back to the East Cape day visitor area or continue on to the West Cape and Salmon Rocks beach
The Boardwalk is 600 metres in length and takes 30 minutes return, if you continue on the Nature Trial it is 1.5 km in length and 1 hour return from the East Cape car park.

Cape Conran can be reached via the Princes Highway by turning off at Cabbage Tree Creek or via Orbost and Marlo to the west.
