Sir Joseph Banks Group Conservation Park

Sir Joseph Banks Group Conservation Park is made up of a number of wilderness islands, islets and reefs.

Only accessible by boat from Tumby Bay and Port Lincoln, the park's limestone-capped islands are havens for wildlife, providing refuge for diverse birdlife and the endangered greater stick-nest rat.

Some islands are prohibited as they are important breeding colonies for wildlife such as sea birds, seals and dolphins, while other islands provide ideal viewing platforms of the marine animals that inhabit the surrounding islands.


Sir Joseph Banks Group Conservation Park is located 20km south east off the coast of Tumby Bay.

Opening times

Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
