Maize Island Conservation Park provides the ideal habitat for a variety of bird and reptile species and is also home to families of western grey kangaroos.
Enjoy camping on the banks of the Murray River and fish along the cliffs and river banks for dinner. Go for a morning walk, keeping an eye out for species of wrens, honeyeaters and birds of prey and see if you can capture them on camera.
Although there are many vehicle tracks throughout the park, driving off the main track that follows the river is not permitted. The park is accessible to 2WD vehicles, however some sections of the main track are sandy or can become slippery when wet.
Free bush camping sites are available along the riverfront and are under the care of the District Council of Loxton Waikerie.
