Navigator and explorer James Cook named this headland ‘Indian Head’ in 1770 when he sighted ‘natives’ on its slope. The present name derives from the large quartz crystals that sparkle in the sun. A loop walking track on Diamond Head gives sweeping views of the beaches in both directions. The return inland track passes through a fern glade, pockets of coastal rainforest and stands of the uniquely Australian grass tree. Here, and in the extensive wetlands and coastal heath elsewhere in the park, the native plants attract a wide variety of bird life.
