Sandy Creek Con­ser­va­tion Park is sur­round­ed by farm­land, vine­yards and deep sand min­ing pits. Estab­lished on gen­tly undu­lat­ing sand dunes with occa­sion­al creeks, the park con­serves some of the last remain­ing veg­e­ta­tion of the sandy soil low­lands of the Barossa Val­ley. Spring is the best time to view the wildflowers. 

The park lies on the edge of the land of the Per­mangk peo­ple, Kau­r­na peo­ple (south) and Ngad­juri peo­ple (north).

Sev­er­al walk­ing trails through the native pine and pink gum allow you to explore the park. Look out for the wildlife such as west­ern grey kan­ga­roos graz­ing on the grass­lands in the ear­ly morn­ing and at dusk. The rich­ness and diver­si­ty of the park’s birdlife makes it par­tic­u­lar­ly sig­nif­i­cant for nat­u­ral­ists and bird­watch­ers. How­ev­er, bird pop­u­la­tions are in decline due to the chang­ing habitat.
