Information

Vast areas of wilderness, the Island's largest freshwater lake and coastal scenery provide a spectacular backdrop to Cape Gantheaume Conservation Park on the south coast of Kangaroo Island.
The park has plenty of walking opportunities, including the unmarked Cape Gantheaume Coastal Trek, suitable for experienced hikers only, and established trails at Murray Lagoon.
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.
This self-guided nature drive on Kangaroo Island begins
at the second boat ramp seven kilometres from the
junction of Elsegood Road and D’Estrees Bay Road.
It will take you to the end of D’Estrees Bay Road adjacent
to Sewer Beach. The drive is approximately eight
kilometres in length.
Follow the map in this guide to explore and gain a
greater understanding of the natural and cultural history
of D’Estrees Bay in Cape Gantheaume Conservation Park.
The trail symbol of an Osprey and the stop number mark
designated stops at points of interest along the drive.
In 1803 the French explorer Nicolas Baudin circumnavigated
Kangaroo Island. He named this long, sweeping bay after
Jacques D’Estrees (1660–1737), a French author, Marshall
of France, Vice-Admiral and Minister of State.
