Consultation has concluded. Thanks for your contributions.

How would you like the Maize Island Lagoon Conservation Park to be redeveloped?

What's being decided?

Parts of the Maize Island Lagoon Conservation Park, near Waikerie will soon be upgraded from Crown Land to become part of the Conservation Park - specifically, the waterfront reserve and road system to the park.

We are keen to hear about how you would like to use the park in the future. For example:

  • Would you like to camp there?
  • What park facilities or infrastructure would you like to see there?

We have developed a draft Concept Plan to assist with the initial consultation of the park development, layout and how to manage visitors to the area.

Background

Maize Island Lagoon Conservation Park is already part of the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) reserve system, however the waterfront reserve traditionally used for camping, is on Crown Land. This land will soon become part of the existing Conservation Park which will require some changes to how people use the area.

We are keen to hear from visitors to the site on how they would like to use it in the future and the things that are important to them.

NPWS are keen to manage this area differently to protect the natural and cultural values of the site, while still allowing people to camp and enjoy the designated areas.

We are also interested to know if the community would support this land being added to the Murray River National Park series of reserves in respect of the significant natural and cultural values of the site.

    The YourSAy survey for Maize Island Lagoon Conservation Park redevelopment was open from 4 October to 10 November 2023. The project page received 165 visitors and 106 survey submissions.

    The feedback we received will be used to update the concept plan and guide campsite development and future management of this site. It has given National Parks and Wildlife Service South Australia a good indication of what facilities people would like provided and how they would like to use the park.

    Updates will be provided to participants who indicated they wanted to be kept up to date with the progress of the project.
