Coffin Bay National Park - Nature Play Park of the Month

News article |

December is the perfect time to explore Coffin Bay National Park as it becomes Nature Play SA’s park of the month.

Nature Play SA, in partnership with the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources, is promoting a month of self-guided outdoor fun and adventure for families.

There will be free park entry for all registered Nature Play SA passport holders and a list of 20 things to discover in Coffin Bay National Park will provide families with free opportunities to enjoy the park.

Park Ranger Sam Everingham said Coffin Bay National Park is important to the region, offering a beautiful balance of coastal and land environments ready for adventure and relaxation.

“If you haven’t been to the park in a while, or if you’ve never been, now is a great opportunity,” Mr Everingham said.

“Working with Nature Play SA we’ve compiled a variety of information for visitors including key locations, wildlife and park experiences.

“Coffin Bay National Park has long been appreciated for its vast space, beautiful scenery and wildlife, and I think visitors will enjoy how Nature Play SA brings it to life for all age groups.”

Nature Play SA Support Manager Jason Tyndall said his first impression of the park was one of awe and wonder.

“The wild ruggedness is beautiful and the park has so many opportunities for families to immerse themselves in nature,” Mr Tyndall said.

“From beach exploring, photography, picnicking, fishing, camping and wildlife spotting, it’s an incredible part of South Australia that every family should experience at some point in their lives.

“My visit in November was captured on the Nature Play SA blog and details my adventures within the park with photos and quotes from locals.”

To collect a Nature Play passport and register visit the Port Lincoln Natural Resources Centre, Level 1/86 Tasman Terrace, or the Port Lincoln Visitor Information Centre.
