How to find us

Deep Creek Conservation Park is 102 kms south of Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, and is an ideal base from which to explore the Fleurieu Peninsula.

From Adelaide:

If you are driving from Adelaide take the Southern Express Way for the pleasant 90 minute journey that takes you past the famous McLaren Vale wine region before ascending to Sellicks Hill and the Victory Hotel, a good spot for lunch before leaving the distant metropolis behind.  The journey continues through the townships of Myponga with its micro brewery, Yankalilla (the bakery is a popular stop), Normanville and Second Valley taking in lovely coastal scenery and rolling countryside along the way.

From Victoria:

For those coming by road from the eastern states or who are following the famous Great Ocean Road there is now an extended route along the South Australian coast known as “The Fleurieu Way”.  It passes through some of the most scenic parts of the Fleurieu Peninsula including Deep Creek en-route to Cape Jervis, Kangaroo Island and Adelaide.  From Victor Harbor take Range Road past Waitpinga and the localities of Willow Creek and Parawa before turning off to Deep Creek Conservation Park.
