Brief park description

Tall trees and spectacular rugged cliffs, shaped by pounding waves, are conserved in the 4,000 hectares of the Deep creek Conservation Park. Orchids and ferns grow in moist gullies with permanent running creeks. Else-where heath and stunted eucalypts struggle to survive on windswept coastal ridges. Walking trails, including the Heysen Trail, cross much of the area, providing access to creeks and waterfalls and giving breathtaking views of the ocean. Animals and wildlife abound.

  • Removal of fences
  • Walking Trail monitoring and maintenance
