Aldinga Scrub Conservation Park

Aldinga Scrub Conservation Park is home to a diverse range of rare plants and is recognised as a significant area for the conservation and protection of the region's flora.

Situated in the Willunga sub-basin, Aldinga Scrub features an impressive backdrop of sand dunes, sand blows (mobile dunes), mallee scrub, remnant red gum forests and closed heaths.

Several walking trails provide fantastic opportunities to enjoy the park's habitat and coastal plant life.

Lacy coral lichen, nardoo, hairy sedge and several species of orchids are among the park's rare species of flora. Remember to look out for the brush-tailed possums, short-beaked echidnas, bats and geckos that live in the park.
