Deep Creek Conservation Park

The 4452 hectare Deep Creek Conservation Park is situated south of Adelaide, South Australia on the Fleurieu Peninsular and overlooks Backstairs Passage, a stretch of water between the mainland and Kangaroo island.

The park is the largest remnant of natural vegetation on the peninsular and is in a transition area between the Kaurna and Ngarrindjeri Aboriginal people.
