Chinaman’s Creek

Situated on the eastern shore of upper Spencer Gulf in South Australia, Winninowie Conservation Park covers an area of 4,318 hectares. It is mainly sited on a low-lying coastal plain bordered by ocean and contains an interesting blend of marine and semi-arid habitats. The western boundary follows the low water mark line and includes important mangrove forest, tidal mudflats and seagrass.
