Maize Island Con­ser­va­tion Park pro­vides the ide­al habi­tat for a vari­ety of bird and rep­tile species and is also home to fam­i­lies of west­ern grey kangaroos.

Enjoy camp­ing on the banks of the Mur­ray Riv­er and fish along the cliffs and riv­er banks for din­ner. Go for a morn­ing walk, keep­ing an eye out for species of wrens, hon­eyeaters and birds of prey and see if you can cap­ture them on camera.

Although there are many vehi­cle tracks through­out the park, dri­ving off the main track that fol­lows the riv­er is not per­mit­ted. The park is acces­si­ble to 2WD vehi­cles, how­ev­er some sec­tions of the main track are sandy or can become slip­pery when wet.
