Lincoln National Park
Lincoln National Park boasts some of the most scenic coastline in South Australia, and features the vast Sleaford-Wanna sand dune system, islands, and the beautiful Memory Cove Wilderness Protection Area.
There are plenty of ways to discover the park's environment. Boating, fishing, beachcombing, swimming, birdwatching and nature walks are popular activities. A variety of designated campgrounds offer easy access to bays, beaches and walking trails, with some accessible by 2WD vehicles.
The park provides habitat to a diverse range of native wildlife. More than 123 species of birds are known to visit the area providing ideal birdwatching opportunities. Look out for the Australian sea-lions and New Zealand fur-seals that haul up on the coast to rest after lengthy fishing trips at sea, or the southern right whales that are occasionally sighted from the park. The bottle-nose dolphin and common dolphin are frequently seen close to the shore.
