Lau­ra Bay Con­ser­va­tion Park rep­re­sents the orig­i­nal veg­e­ta­tion that once cov­ered South Aus­trali­a’s west­ern coast­line. The shel­tered bay, with its tidal sam­phire flats and man­groves, pro­vides ide­al feed­ing grounds for sea birds, many of which migrate from the north­ern hemi­sphere each year.

Look for the land­ing site that can still be seen on the head­land. Estab­lished in 1911, this site was once a hive of activ­i­ty, where bags of grain, trans­port­ed by horse-drawn drays from sur­round­ing farms, were loaded onto ketches.

Maps on your mobile

If you have a smart­phone or tablet you can down­load the free Aven­za Map app and have inter­ac­tive nation­al park maps on hand when you need them.

The app uses your device’s built-in GPS to plot your real-time loca­tion with­in the park onto a map. The app can be used with­out a net­work con­nec­tion and with­out roam­ing charges. You can also mea­sure area and dis­tance, plot pho­tos and drop place­mark pins. 

How to get it work­ing on your device:

1. Down­load the Aven­za Maps app from the app store (iOS/Android) whilst you are still in range (its free!).
2. Open up the app and click the shop­ping cart icon.
3. Click Find’ and type the name of the nation­al park or reserve you are look­ing for.
4. Click on the map you are after and install it (all our maps are free).
5. You will now find a list of your installed maps on the home page of the Aven­za Maps app.
6. Use our maps through the Aven­za Mapa app while in the park and nev­er take a wrong turn again.
