South Australia's parks range from arid desert regions to inland lakes and rivers, unspoilt bushland and rugged coastlines. Not surprisingly, they provide unlimited opportunities for keen photographers.

Among the best are:

Cape Gantheaume Conservation Park on the southern coast of Kangaroo Island has vast areas of wilderness and spectacular coastal scenery. It includes Murray Lagoon, the island's largest freshwater lagoon, a wetland habitat supporting abundant birdlife.

Beachport Conservation Park is a 710 hectare park with outstanding coastal scenery. Dedicated to protecting sand dunes and coastal vegetation, the park's coastline is dramatic with smooth, white sandy beaches that are punctuated by rough, weathered limestone cliffs.

Cleland Wildlife Park is a must-see attraction for visitors from all over the world. They can come face-to-face with Australia's unique wildlife, providing great photo opportunities.

Innes National Park offers diverse and vibrant flora and fauna and the impressive landscape of rugged cliffs, offshore islands, sandy beaches, historic shipwrecks, lighthouses and heritage buildings.

Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park provides fantastic opportunities for photography all year round. In winter the denser air provides sharp detail for photography and spring brings a carnival of colour, with many flowering plants and birds.
