Butch­er Gap Con­ser­va­tion Park is one of the last remain­ing sig­nif­i­cant coastal scrubs between the Coorong and Robe. This wet­land area, encom­pass­ing Salt Lake and Butch­er Lake, is sep­a­rat­ed by the Butch­er Gap Drain which brings large amounts of fresh water from the farm­lands, through the park and out to sea.

The park attracts an array of wildlife through­out the year. Sea­son­al water­birds such as swans and white-faced herons fre­quent the lakes, while small bush birds may be seen along the park’s scenic walk­ing trails.
