Murray Lagoon – Cape Gantheaume Conservation Park

National Parks and Reserves Natural Attractions

Cape Gantheaume Conservation Park is located on the southern coast of Kangaroo Island approximately 40 kilometres south west of Kingscote. It possesses vast areas of wilderness and spectacular coastal scenery.

Murray Lagoon to the north of the reserve is the island’s largest freshwater lagoon, a wetland habitat supporting abundant birdlife. The park also includes D’Estrees Bay, a historic site of the early whaling industry with sandy beaches and low key camping areas (camping fees apply).

At D’Estrees Bay and Murray Lagoon there are a number of walking trails in the Murray Lagoon area and wilderness walking opportunities along the coast commencing from the end of the road to D’Estrees Road.

Self-registration and payment for camping is available at the park.
