Lit­tle Dip Con­ser­va­tion Park con­serves a num­ber of small lakes found through­out the park. Each lake has its own unique char­ac­ter, rang­ing from the open, marshy and shal­low Lake Eliza to the very salty Big Dip Lake, and the deep Fresh Water Lake.

The area fea­tures a rugged­ly beau­ti­ful coast­line includ­ing a large area of coastal sand dunes. The fore­shore of Lake Eliza was home to the Boandik peo­ple some 10,000 years ago — large num­bers of mid­dens (shell­fish remains) can still be seen in the park today.

The coastal scrub that gives way to thick groves of melaleu­ca, dense rush­es and sam­phire flats sur­round­ing the lakes is a haven for bird­watch­ers. The beach­es pro­vide good oppor­tu­ni­ties for beach­comb­ing and surf fishing.

Access to the Upper South East Marine Park is also avail­able from this park.
