Background

The Little Dip Conservation Park conserves a number of small lakes, each with its own unique character, ranging from the open, marshy and shallow Lake Eliza to the very salty Big Dip Lake, and the deep Fresh Water Lake. The park also contains a ruggedly beautiful coastline including a large area of coastal sand dunes.

The Boandik People have lived on the Limestone Coast for many thousands of years and they know the land intimately – its physical features, animal and plant life and water resources. Today, the Boandik People continue to maintain strong cultural links to the region.

The Little Dip Conservation Park Management Plan was adopted in 1992. These draft amendments currently proposed are in response to the South Australian Government’s commitment to creating new opportunities for families to retain shacks in the park by expanding the eligibility to maintain a lease in return for upgrading the shack to meet contemporary safety, amenity and environmental standards.
