Baudin Con­ser­va­tion Park was a fam­i­ly farm from 1861 to 2001, and com­pris­es of she-oak wood­land and rolling hills, with spec­tac­u­lar views across Back­stairs Pas­sage to the Fleurieu Peninsula.

Inter­pre­ta­tion along the Iron­stone Hill Hike fol­lows part of the orig­i­nal bul­lock track to Cape Willough­by and pro­vides an insight into how the Bates fam­i­ly lived and worked in this area. The hike leads to Iron­stone Hill where the ruins of the Bates’ cot­tage and a stone thresh­ing floor remain.

While walk­ing through the park you may encounter tam­mar wal­la­bies, and see wedge-tailed eagles. The rare glossy black cock­a­toos may also be seen feed­ing in the she-oak forest.

You may even catch a glimpse of dol­phins and whales swim­ming in Back­stairs Pas­sage adjoin­ing the park.
