Innes National Park reviews
Stenhouse Bay is a fabulous campground. Great sites, fairly level, and surrounded by native shrubs and trees. There are good, clean toilets and gas barbecues should you need one. We stayed 6 nights...

Stunning views, beaches and rock pools. We did a day visit and were selective about the 3 spots we wanted to visit, previous experience told us that there is too much to see in one day. We saw emus at Shell Beach. Shell Beach rock pool was excellent; best accessed with reef shoes and is a good depth for jumping in and snorkelling when there are fewer people around. A quick dip and photo opportunity at the blue Inneston Lake; so salty you can float and read a book at the same time! Take plenty of water and food; very limited facilities in the park itself.
Visited this national park as a day trip. But there are lot to visit. People are coming here for camping, relaxing and enjoying the environment due to amazing views and beautiful beaches. To enter the national park a payment of $12.50 is required per vehicle (not per person).
This is a must go place in South Australia. Entry to the national park requires a payment of $12.50 per vehicle (not per person). You have to do the payment online. There is an information center. However, they do not accept payments there. When you get closer to the park, on the road you will see boards mentioning that a payment is required to get in. You can actually get to the visitor center do the payment online while you’re there at the carpark. This place has got so many beautiful beaches, lighthouses, and picturesque animals, flora and fauna. A lot of people come here for camping. I would say, you honestly need about one whole day to explore all the places here. Every place is 2WD accessible. So no worries about your vehicle. I’m not sure of toilet facilities. I think the visitor center has one. But it was closed when we went there.
Beautiful National Park at the end of the Yorke Peninsula a very much needed and well preserved area in contrast with the extensive agricultural ecological wastelands of the rest of the peninsula it is worth the drive you won’t be disappointed. The pictures are of a mob of Great Eastern Kangaroos hiding among the costal vegetation at sunset.
Great national Park at the bottom of Yorke Peninsula. Always plenty of wildlife and amazing beaches to meet everyones needs, surfing, fishing, swimming, photography it's got it all covered. If you are on the bottom half of the peninsula, give it a look you won't be disappointed. For the dog owners please note this is a national Park and dogs are not allowed. Enjoy people's.
