Description

Butcher Gap Conservation Park is one of the last remaining significant coastal scrubs between the Coorong and Robe. This wetland area, encompassing Salt Lake and Butcher Lake, is separated by the Butcher Gap Drain which brings large amounts of fresh water from the farmlands, through the park and out to sea. The park attracts an array of wildlife throughout the year. Seasonal waterbirds such as swans and white-faced herons frequent the lakes, while small bush birds may be seen along the park's scenic walking trails. Butcher Gap Conservation Park Interpretive Trail As you walk about the park, you will see small green marker posts indicating points of interest. These include native flora, unique animal habitat and the remains of industry on the land. Dogs are not permitted in this park. Camping is not permitted within this park.

If you want a walk with botany and birds, and the slight chance of the orange-bellied parrot, this is a delightful little sandy track circuit. We loved the samphire meadows. Winter for water birds. PS it's hard to spot the narrow track entry but there is a slim brown sign right at it.
