Park management plans are the primary public accountability document for each of South Australia’s parks. Management plans set strategic direction, and explain how parks are managed.
The Government has committed to developing the Wild South Coast Way, a $6 million dollar project to upgrade the Heysen Trail and associated infrastructure between Cape Jervis and Victor Harbor. The investment will include the development of new walk-in campsites in Deep Creek and Newland Head Conservation Parks.
The management plans for these parks only allow for the development of campsites in specific circumstances and areas, and no suitable areas which meet the strict criteria of the management plans have been found. View full copies of the existing management plans.
It is proposed the management plans for these parks be amended to allow for the development of new campsites.
This process seeks to maintain strong protection for the values of the respective parks, whilst allowing for the development of low-impact, walk-in campsites in appropriate locations along the Wild South Coast Way.
