Temporary disruption to Stenhouse Bay campground
Visitors intending to camp at Stenhouse Bay campground between April and June 2015 should be aware that they may be impacted by noise and dust from passing trucks associated with the upgrade of roads in Innes National Park. We apologise for any inconvenience during this period.
Spectacular coastal landscapes with rugged cliffs and sandy beaches provide the backdrop of Innes National Park. The park comprises 9,415 hectares of coastal vegetation, contributing to one of the few large areas of significant vegetation on the Yorke Peninsula.
Innes offers fantastic opportunities to enjoy camping, bushwalking, fishing and surfing. Discover the park's mining and maritime history by exploring the remnants of Inneston, once a booming gypsum-mining town, or go scuba diving among the shipwrecks that lay off the coast of the park. You can even stay overnight in one of the restored miners cottages in the historic Inneston village.
