District Manager Peter Wilkins said Lincoln National Park was recognised as one of the South Australia’s most scenic national parks.
“It offers a great variety of recreational opportunities, including bush camping, picnicking, fishing, four-wheel driving, snorkeling, bird watching and opportunities to admire some of Eyre Peninsula’s most spectacular coastal scenery from one of the many available walking trails,” Mr Wilkins said.
“For something extra special, Nature Play SA, the Friends of Southern Eyre Peninsula Parks and Natural Resources Eyre Peninsula have programmed a fantastic family-oriented day of events on Sunday, 17 April.”
Activities include a guided ‘natural treasures’ treasure hunt for children, a tree planting session and an introduction to propagating your own native seedling, all starting from the Stamford Hill Day visitors’ area at 10am.
“Lincoln Bay National Park has long been appreciated by the Eyre Peninsula community, and people of all ages will enjoy the activities that Nature Play SA brings,” Mr Wilkins said.
Nature Play SA Support Manager Jason Tyndall said his first impression of the park was one of awe and wonder.
“Lincoln National Park is truly a special place – a wild and rugged Park with hidden treasures,” he said.
“There are camping sites tucked behind sand dunes and amongst the trees with beaches full of bird life, unique geology and a variety of beach treasure to comb through. “Around every corner there is something else to discover. It’s a world with its own identity. ”
“I was fortunate enough to meet several members of the Friends group who are very passionate, hard working and inspiring with the restoration works they do around the park. “My visit in March has been turned into a blog that details my adventures in the park with photos and quotes from locals.”
