    Tor­rens Island Con­ser­va­tion Park is locat­ed about 15km north-west of Ade­laide. The island is locat­ed with­in the Ade­laide Dol­phin Sanc­tu­ary between the Port Riv­er, Bark­er Inlet and Sec­tion Bank mudflats. 

    This impor­tant nat­ur­al area sup­ports man­groves, sam­phire and coastal dunes, which pro­vide impor­tant habi­tat for a range of native fau­na species, includ­ing 69 bird species of con­ser­va­tion significance. 

    There is no pub­lic vehi­cle access to this park. The pub­lic can access some part­sof the park via small water­craft. There are no jet­ties or moor­ing facil­i­ties­for boats.

    Recre­ation oppor­tu­ni­ties in the adja­cent Ade­laide Dol­phin Sanc­tu­ary include dol­phin watch­ing, kayak­ing and boating.
