Canun­da National Park features a diversity of coastal habitats and offers great oppor­tu­ni­ties to enjoy bush­walk­ing, observe local birdlife, surf the waves or snorkel among the fish.The north­ern sec­tion of the park is char­ac­terised by lime­stone cliffs, sea stacks, off­shore reefs and low dense scrub, where­as the south­ern sec­tion is dom­i­nat­ed by mobile sand dunes and stretch­es of beach which are backed by low fore­dunes. Evi­dence of the Boandik Peo­ples, who reg­u­lar­ly camped along the coast, can be seen through­out the park.The 40km coast­line offers great fish­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties. Depend­ing on the sea­son and ocean con­di­tions, mul­loway, salmon, sharks or rays may tempt a bite. Try your luck off the rocks where sweep, abalone and cray­fish may be caught.Four-wheel dri­ving is pos­si­ble along the full length of the park by fol­low­ing the mark­er posts through the dunes and along Gelt­wood Beach.Canun­da Nation­al Park is locat­ed 18km north west of Mil­li­cent or 428km south east of Ade­laide. Access is via Mil­li­cent, Southend or Car­pen­ter Rocks. Two-wheel dri­ve access is pos­si­ble in the north­ern and cen­tral sec­tions of the park and Cape Banks in the south­ern section.See Nearby Places for specific points of interest and camping areas within the park.
