Deep Creek Conservation Park

Deep Creek Conservation Park has five campgrounds to choose from and is a bushwalker's delight. It's also the start of the Heysen Trail. A beautiful and challenging clifftop walk is one of the many highlights of the area.

A short hike will give you spectacular views over Backstairs Passage, the stretch of water between Cape Jervis and Kangaroo Island with 18 kilometres of stunning coastline to admire.

See echidnas, kangaroos and birds in natural settings, between lush vegetated valleys of yacka and beautiful bushland. 

Newland Head Conservation Park

Roll out of your tent right next to the beach at the Waitpinga Campground in the Newland Head Conservation Park. It's a great place to base yourself for beach fishing with plenty of spots nearby to catch a mulloway or two.

Get your walking shoes on and hit the trail from the bush campground, up rolling hills and past rugged cliffs, enjoying panoramic views of Waitpinga Creek, Encounter Bay, Backstairs Passage and Kangaroo Island.

Aldinga and McLaren Vale

At Aldinga Beach Holiday Park you can "rough it", but still take advantage of modern facilities. The Willunga Farmers’ Market is on every Saturday and has all the premium fresh produce to make you feel you're eating like royalty.

Aldinga also has some great fishing spots, so feel free to catch your own dinner if you prefer.

McLaren Vale Lakeside Caravan Park has everything from basic campsites to comfortable cabins. It's set in the heart of the McLaren Vale wine region and is ideal for families as it has a swimming pool, tennis courts and a playground. It’s a great base location for touring the Fleurieu Peninsula and local wineries in McLaren Vale.


The Goolwa Caravan Park has a range of campsites and cabins, as well as spacious grass areas, picnic areas and barbecues. It's the perfect spot if you want to visit the Coorong and the Murray Mouth or look at local art and craft galleries, wineries and beaches.

What are you waiting for? Grab your tent or caravan and come and camp on the Fleurieu Peninsula.
