Upgrades to Coffin Bay National Park and Lincoln National Park

Upgrades to Coffin Bay National Park and 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, followed by upgrades at the Golden Island Day Visitor Area in Coffin Bay National Park.

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.

Meanwhile at Coffin Bay National Park, visitors to Golden Island Day Visitor Area will soon be able to kick back and relax under two new picnic shelters, with new toilet facilities and an expanded car park all part of the works package. Also included is an upgrade to the fencing, landscaping and signage at this special site.

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.
