Here are Caravanning Australia’s top national parks located in South Australia:
Innes National Park
Need a dose of the beach? Innes National Park is the perfect place to visit – history, nature and exercise lovers will all find themselves in love with what Innes National Park has to offer. Discover walking trails that range from 30 minute strolls to four hour hikes, spot a variety of birds and native animals and even visit shipwreck sites to learn about the history behind maritime South Australia. This park is also home to many camping and caravan sites and is the perfect place to set up your base on your journey.
Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park
It wouldn’t be an accurate national park series if Ikara-Flinders Ranges National Park wasn’t mentioned. The team at Caravanning Australia have been intrigued with this specific national park for years and once you see it for yourself, you’ll understand why. The rugged landscape is an amazing sight to see while also offering a range of activities for all types of tourists. Adrenaline junkies will enjoy four-wheel driving and mountain biking, while those interested in Aboriginal culture will be able to view traditional rock paintings at the Arkaroo Rock.
Naracoorte Caves National Park
Did anyone dream of being an archaeologist as a child? Naracoorte Caves National Park will be incredibly exciting for you! For over 500,000 years a variety of animals roamed the area, many falling into the caves and becoming preserved over time. Their skeletons are now on display at the Wonambi Fossil Centre, where you can see life-sized models of these animals that faced extinction and witness the phenomenal limestone formations located in the caves. Caravanning and camping grounds are also located, making it the perfect place to explore for more than a day.
