Deep Creek Conservation Park
A gorgeous mix of green fields and ancient trees, rolling hills and rugged coastlines, Deep Creek Conservation Park is a magical place to explore. And the 15 walking trails help you to do it. Along the way you'll meet the resident western grey kangaroos, short beaked echidnas and 100 species of birds.
This is part of the Melbourne to Adelaide Drive.
