On the southern tip of the Yorke Peninsula, Innes National Park encompasses spectacular coastal landscapes, a diversity of wildlife habitats and a wide range of recreational opportunities. Hear the waves crash on the beaches, the wind whispering through the sheoaks. View the rugged coastlines sculpted by the Southern Ocean and wander through remnants of South Australias mining and maritime history. Salt lakes occur further inland, amongst the mallee woodlands.

The park comprises 9,232 ha of coastal vegetation, this represents one of only a very few remaining pockets of significant vegetation on the Yorke Peninsula. This makes Innes National park an important refuge for biodiversity.

With a diversity of habitats, as well as heritage and coastal scenery, Innes provides a wide variety of recreation opportunities including bushwalking, bird watching, photography, camping, discovering the Aboriginal and European history, fishing and surfing.

Innes National Park is approximately 300 km from Adelaide.
