Start the conversation

The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has invited all South Australia to “Spring into Eyre Peninsula” this September to celebrate the region as its latest ‘Park of the Month’.

According to the NPWS, Lincoln National Park and Coffin Bay National Park are active and open on each side of the southern Eyre Peninsula and are renowned for their natural beauty, abundant wildlife and destinations for camping, bushwalking and water sports.

NPWS Ranger Elly Schultz has lived and worked in Eyre Peninsula’s national parks for four years, experiencing the changing of the seasons which bring new life and colour to the parks’ landscapes as they bloom with spring wildflowers.

“Spring is a wonderful time to get outdoors and explore Lincoln and Coffin Bay National Parks,” Ranger Schultz said.

“There is so much to see and do, even for regular visitors.”

She said her the favourite thing she liked about visiting the parks in spring was seeing emu chicks out with their Dads and the spring wildflowers which start to bloom – especially with Templetonia, also known as cockies tongue – in Coffin Bay National Park.

“We’ve put together an exciting program of activities for Park of the Month and I hope people take up the opportunity to attend one of the events to see why these parks are so wonderful,” Ms Schultz said.

“Whether you come out for an exciting kayak in our marine park or mindfulness walk to relax and unwind amongst nature, rangers would love to see you there enjoying the parks,” she said.

She said ‘Park of the Month’ activities this September include Kayaking in the Yangie Bay Sanctuary Zone in Coffin Bay National Park; Mindfulness in the Mallee nature walk in Lincoln National Park; Ranger-guided weeding polygala and Sleaford Mere walk in Lincoln National Park; and Guided fire ecology walk in Lincoln National Park.

More information about these and other events in the parks can be accessed on the NPWS website at this PS News link.
