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.
