Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park

Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park is a favourite for camping, fishing and surfing. Bushwalking is a great way to discover the park, with trails ranging from 30-minute strolls to four-hour treks. You’ll spot an abundance of birds and animals while you catch some of the best coastal views in South Australia. All of the park is accessible by 2WD, so it’s perfect for day visits and a paradise for beach lovers.

There is something for everyone at Innes. Visit one of the lighthouses and the shipwreck of the Ethel to learn about the tumultuous maritime history of South Australia. Explore historic Inneston, an abandoned township surrounded by bushland. Take a stroll from your campsite down to the beach for a spot of fishing, or base yourself in one of the restored heritage cottages dotted throughout historic Inneston.

Southern Spencer Gulf Marine Park borders Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park.

In late 2020, we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the proclamation of Innes National Park and the start of a new chapter with the commencement of a co-management agreement with the Narungga traditional owners. In recognition of this milestone, the park was renamed to Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park.

National Parks and Wildlife Service are currently working on a number of upgrades in the park, including the creation of a new lookout, new picnic shelters and barbeques, new toilet blocks, extra car parking and upgraded access roads.

Please note that camping fees are changing in this park from Friday 1 July 2022.
