Immerse yourself in nature along an extensive network of walking trails, including sections of the Heysen Trail, that reveal the beautiful bushland and rugged terrain of Deep Creek Conservation Park.

The park is the largest remaining block of wildlife habitat on the Fleurieu Peninsula and is home to an array of native wildlife. Look out for western grey kangaroos, short-beaked echidnas or some of the 100 bird species that can easily be heard or spotted when walking in the park. The walking trails also provide spectacular scenery of the Backstairs Passage, Kangaroo Island and the rugged Deep Creek valley.

After a day of exploring, why not extend your stay under the stars at one of the five campgrounds or relax in one of the private cottages or retreat accommodation options located in the park.

While you're in the area, explore nearby Talisker Conservation Park and discover the heritage-listed ruins of a silver and lead mine from the 1860s, or visit Encounter Marine Park which offers some of Australia’s best-preserved ocean wilderness.
