The Innes National Park is one of the most spectacular parks within Australia. The park is located on the south-west tip of Yorke Peninsula and
showcases some of the most spectacular coastal scenery that Australia has to offer. The coast line is three dimensional, and offers some amazing
views that have been carved by the Southern Ocean over past years. You will see the various offshore islands including Chinaman's Hat, Althorpes
and Kangaroo Island. Innes borders Marion Bay and is one of the most visited National Parks in South Australia. With its diversity of habitats, and
an abundance of heritage and coastal scenery, Innes provides a wide variety of recreation opportunities, including bushwalking, photography,
camping, diving, fishing and surfing.
There is an abundance of history in the area, tales from the deep to its inception of infrastructure that was developed for mining gypsum in the
early 1900's. You can explore the remains of the historic heritage-listed Inneston village where gypsum used to be mined. Gypsum was transported
along a railway line to the jetty at Stenhouse Bay which is now called the Thomson/Pfitzner Plaster Trail. This trail offers coastal and salt lake
views with sign posted information along the way detailing the areas mining history. Make sure you give way to the emus and the kangaroos.
Let your imagination take you on a journey back in time as you walk the Investigator Strait Maritime Heritage Trail along the coast of Innes
National Park. Lying on the ocean bed off the coast of Yorke Peninsula and Innes National Park are the skeletons of around 40 ship wrecks.
Land-based interpretive signs tell the tails of the park's maritime history from 1849 to 1982 in the days of sail and steam. Diver's from all a
round the world come to dive the cemetery of shipwrecks.
