Little Dip Conservation Park

The Little Dip Conservation Park has a mixture of saltwater and freshwater environments with an extraordinarily rich diversity of vegetation and landforms.

The Little Dip Conservation Park is wedged between the Southern Ocean and a network of wetlands and lakes and is located just south of Robe. The shoreline consists of surfing beaches and limestone headlands.

A four-wheel-drive vehicle is recommended to fully explore the dune system and coastal strip of the park, although major locations of the park are accessible to conventional vehicles.

The Little Dip Conservation Park conserves a large number of small lakes. Each lake has its own characteristics, ranging from marshy, open and shallow to very salty to very deep. The beautiful coastline consists of a large number of sand dunes. A large number of shellfish remains can be seen in the park, these are believed to have been left by Aboriginal people who settled here thousands of years ago.

The Little Dip Conservation Park was declared as Conservation Park in 1975 under the National Park and Wildlife Act of 1972. The main purpose of the park is to conserve vegetation and chain of small lakes and to provide habitat for various endangered species of birds.

The Park is 341 kilometres south-east of Adelaide and opens 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The lakes are a haven for birdwatchers. The beaches also provide a good opportunity for surf fishing. The park also has four camping grounds with basic facilities.

  • Hi Shakira,

    I have checked out the park maps and read some of the information on the signage, and there doesn’t appear to be any references to there being showers – so odds are, there likely isn’t any.

    Also, the toilets at the campgrounds seem to be the pit type, so i don’t think there is any running water or electricity at the facilities.

    Thanks
    Michael

    • G’day Lauren,

      No, there are no BBQ’s located the campsites.

      Here is some further info from SA Gov:
      “Wood fires and solid fuel fires are prohibited between 22 November 2016 to 30 April 2017.
      Ocean beach foreshores: wood fires or solid fuel fires are permitted between high water mark and low water mark other than on days of total fire ban.
      You must bring your own firewood, as the collection of firewood within National Parks is prohibited.
      Gas fires are permitted through the year, other than on days of total fire ban.”

      Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Jess
