Cape Gantheaume Conservation Park and Wilderness Protection Area

National Parks and Reserves

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.

The park has plenty of walking opportunities, including the unmarked Cape Gantheaume Coastal Trek (experienced hikers only), established trails at Murray Lagoon (may be subject to flooding in the winter months), and short walks at D’Estrees Bay.

Murray Lagoon supports wetland habitat for abundant birdlife, while D’Estrees Bay has beautiful beaches for recreation. This bay is a historic site connected to the island’s early whaling industry.

The self-guided drive along D’Estrees Bay Road allows the visitor to discover the natural and cultural significance of the area. Designated points of interest along the 8km drive are marked with a silhouette of an osprey bird.

Camping is available at Murray Lagoon and D’Estrees Bay
