Aldin­ga Con­ser­va­tion Park is home to a diverse range of rare plants and is recog­nised as a sig­nif­i­cant area for the con­ser­va­tion and pro­tec­tion of the region’s flo­ra and fau­na. The park is of con­sid­er­able spir­i­tu­al and cul­tur­al sig­nif­i­cance to the Kau­r­na peo­ple who today main­tain their con­nec­tion with Country.

Pro­claimed in Jan­u­ary 2022, the park is sit­u­at­ed on the land for­mer­ly occu­pied by Aldin­ga Scrub Con­ser­va­tion Park and the adja­cent Aldin­ga Washpool.

The size of the park equates to about 340 hectares which includes the high bio­di­ver­si­ty and valu­able habitat.

Sit­u­at­ed in the Willun­ga sub-basin, it fea­tures an impres­sive back­drop of sand dunes, sand blows (mobile dunes) and rem­nant coastal vegetation.

The Aldin­ga Wash­pool area is home to swamp plants of con­ser­va­tion sig­nif­i­cance, includ­ing a threat­ened coastal salt­marsh which is nation­al­ly list­ed as a vul­ner­a­ble threat­ened eco­log­i­cal community. 

Lacy coral lichen, nar­doo, hairy sedge and sev­er­al species of orchids are among the park’s rare species of flo­ra. Remem­ber to look out for the short-beaked echid­nas, lizards, bats and the diverse range of birds that live in the park.
