Park safety

As with visiting any natural environment, your safety is an absolute priority. Before embarking on any wilderness activities, be sure to check for any park closures or fire bans and closures that may affect you.

Park management

Parks and reserves in South Australia are established and protected by the Department for Environment and Water. This protected area system includes all reserves proclaimed under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972, the Wilderness Protection Act 1992 and conservation reserves dedicated to the Minister under the Crown Land Management Act 2009.

A number of plans and strategies have been developed to guide how we look after our natural spaces and how people visit, use and enjoy South Australia’s national parks, marine parks and reserves. These strategies also aim to encourage more people to enjoy our state’s parks, learn about nature and get involved in conservation activities within, and beyond, park boundaries.
