Red Banks Conservation Park

Free Camping - South Australia


Turn off Eastern Road at GPS co-ordinates and follow the road until you reach the T-Junction and then turn left or right to find your camping spot.  Either left or right will take you to a large circular camping area.

Red Banks Conservation Park features a scenic landscape of meandering rugged earth gorges, spring-fed waterholes and remnant old growth mallee trees. Palaeontologists have called this area one of the richest megafauna sites in Australia. Up until approximately 65,000 years ago, Red Banks was home to Diprotodons, a huge marsupial that weighed between one to two tonnes, often likened to a giant wombat.

Take the fascinating Landscapes of Change interpretive walking trail which pass through deep red earth gorges and permanent waterholes to learn what the landscape was like when these large marsupials were alive.

Find a quiet spot among the waterholes and remnant mallee trees within the park’s peaceful campground and listen to the wildlife as you settle in for the night. The campground also provides an ideal setting for bird watching.

There are 10 unpowered sites suitable for tents, camper trailers, caravans and motorhomes. Pit toilets are located nearby. Please note this is a small campground that can not be reserved in advance. 

Please remember to bring your own drinking water. The creeks and waterholes should not be relied upon for safe drinking water.

There are no fees and you do not need to book online to camp in this park.

Important information for campers:

  • Fire restrictions apply. Be self-sufficient and carry adequate supplies of drinking water - do not rely on tanks or creeks for water. Generators are not permitted.
