Deep Creek National Park

Deep Creek National Park is the largest portion of remaining natural vegetation on the Fleurieu Peninsula and is home to an array of native wildlife such as western grey kangaroos, short beaked echidnas and 100 species of birds that can be heard and seen while walking in the park. Whales can be seen cruising the coast during their annual migration which takes place from June to October.

Located within 100 km of Adelaide, this park is a perfect destination for a day trip or weekend getaway. Five campgrounds are dotted throughout the park with four of them accessible by 2WD vehicles. The other campground is 'hike-in' only and situated on the Heysen trail, making it an ideal environment for a family adventure.

The 15 walking trails in the park provide spectacular scenery of Backstairs Passage, Kangaroo Island and the rugged Deep Creek Valley. The walks range from easy to very difficult so accommodating for all ages and abilities. The walking trail network in Deep Creek National Park includes sections of the famous Heysen Trail.

Explore nearby Talisker Conservation Park and discover the heritage-listed ruins of a silver and lead mine from 1860s or visit Encounter Marine Park which offers some of Australia's best-preserved ocean wilderness.
