Investing in Eyre Peninsula’s national parks

Upgrades at Lincoln National Park

Construction is underway to improve existing visitor facilities in Eyre Peninsula parks, with the first round of works to be undertaken at Lincoln National Park’s popular Fisherman Point Campground.

More than 30 parks across the state have received a slice of the $130 million Parks 2025 investment, which will go towards better visitor facilities and site improvements, enhancements to nature-based tourism offerings and continued conservation of our natural landscapes and wildlife.

At Lincoln National Park, on Lower Eyre Peninsula, upgrades will include increasing capacity at Fisherman Point Campground from 15 unallocated sites to 19 allocated sites, installing new signage, replacing toilet blocks, improving vehicle access loop tracks, and improving pedestrian beach access.

The campground will also be formalised by delineating individual campsites, which will enable visitors to book a particular campsite, rather than the current arrangement where bookings are taken for the campground but are occupied on a first-come first-served basis.

The Department for Environment and Water is working with Aboriginal communities and Friends of Parks volunteer group to ensure the best outcome in updating these visitor facilities at this iconic park.
