Vast areas of wilderness, the Island's largest lagoon and coastal scenery provide a spectacular backdrop to Cape Gantheaume Conservation Park and adjoining Wilderness Protection Area on the south coast of Kangaroo Island. This large area of pristine coastal environment is important for biodiversity and provides a continuous block of vegetation adjoining Seal Bay Conservation Park, a critical corridor and habitat for a range of rare and threatened species.
The park has plenty of walking opportunities, including the unmarked Cape Gantheaume Coastal Trek (experienced hikers only), established trails at Murray Lagoon (may be subject to flooding in the winter months), and short walks at D’Estrees Bay.
Murray Lagoon supports wetland habitat for abundant birdlife, while D'Estrees Bay has beautiful beaches for recreation. This bay is a historic site connected to the island's early whaling industry.
The self-guided drive along D'Estrees Bay Road allows the visitor to discover the natural and cultural significance of the area. Designated points of interest along the 8km drive are marked with a silhouette of an osprey bird.
Access to Southern Kangaroo Island Marine Park is also available from this park.
