National Parks & Wildlife Eyre Peninsula
South Australia

Lincoln National Park

17,000 hectares A place of dramatic contrasts, from the gently undulating north coast to the rugged bluffs of the south. Being just twenty kilometres south of Port Lincoln, the open country and quiet bays present ideal locations for camping or day trips. Bush walkers find the exposed coastline and granite-topped hills a challenge and the cliff-top walk near Wanna is particularly memorable but please take care. Parrots, emus and kangaroos inhabit the northern section, while osprey and sea eagles soar over the southern coast.

Cape Catastrophe and Memory Cove, where Matthew Flinders lost eight of his men in 1802, are both wilderness areas reached only by four wheel drive vehicles. While conventional vehicles can negotiate most of the park tracks, some are rough and can become impassable. Seek advice from the District Ranger at Port Lincoln: telephone (08) 8688 3177.

Remember fire bans apply during summer months.

Coffin Bay National Park

30,380 hectares Coffin Bay National Park covers the entire Coffin Bay Peninsula and contains some beautiful, unspoilt coastal wilderness.

Several scenic drives lead through the park. While some are only accessible to four wheel drive vehicles, conventional cars can travel the Yangie Trail, which starts at Coffin Bay and runs to Yangie Bay and Avoid Bay.

Almonta Beach, to the east of Point Avoid, is one of the country's finest surfing beaches.

The park has a great variety of wildlife, including the Coffin Bay brumbies. Seabirds are prolific, with white-bellied sea eagles, ospreys, albatrosses and petrels a common sight.

Camping in Coffin Bay National Park is by permit from the Coffin Bay Ranger Station, telephone (08) 8685 4047.
