A scenic track takes you on a loop from Mystery Bay, through the camping ground and to the historic Velodrome, built in the late 1890's by the enthusiastic Corunna Cycle Club.

You can catch a glimpse of many interesting native animals that regularly wander around the Camp Ground and National Park. When you reach the velodrome, ride around it to become part of history.

Surfing is also popular at Mystery Bay and the neighbouring beaches.
Gulaga (Mt Dromedary) and the surrounding landscape have great spiritual significance to local Aboriginal people, particularly Aboriginal women. The park also incorporates the former Wallaga Lake National Park. In May 2006, the park was handed back to its traditional Aboriginal owners in an historic agreement signed by New South Wales Government and the Yuin people. The mountain is an isolated volcanic core rising 797 metres above sea level and towering over the historical villages of Tilba Tilba and Central Tilba. Viewed from the sea the mountain resembles a dromedary camel. The walking track starts from Tilba Tilba and the walk to the top and return is approximately 14 kilometres and takes about 5 hours. The rainforest is a spectacular sight with pinkwood and sassafras trees draped with long green moss and lichen. The forest floor is covered with fragile ground ferns and mosses.
