Little Dip Conservation Park
Little Dip Conservation Park conserves a number of small lakes found throughout the park. Each lake has its own unique character, ranging from the open, marshy and shallow Lake Eliza to the very salty Big Dip Lake, and the deep Fresh Water Lake.
The area features a ruggedly beautiful coastline including a large area of coastal sand dunes. The foreshore of Lake Eliza was once home to large numbers of Aboriginal Boandik people some 10,000 years ago. Large number of middens (shellfish remains) left by the Aboriginal people can still be seen in the park today.
The coastal scrub that gives way to thick groves of melaleuca, dense rushes and samphire flats surrounding the lakes is a haven for birdwatchers. The beaches provide good opportunities for beachcombing and surf fishing.
Access to the Upper South East Marine Park is also available from this park.
Little Dip Conservation Park is located 341km south east of Adelaide. Access is via Alternate Highway 1.
Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
