Innes National Park
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.
Purchase entry and camping permits from a self-registration station when you first enter the park. These are located adjacent to the Innes National Park Visitor Centre and Gym Beach Campground. To find out more information and to book accommodation at Inneston contact the Innes National Park Visitor Centre.
Print your own copy of the Innes National Park brochure (1.68mb pdf) before you go. Please consider the environment and print only the pages relevant to your visit.
