This trail winds down a steep hill to beautiful Blowhole Beach, a popular local fishing and surfing spot. From the picnic area at Cobbler Hill you’ll have extensive views of Backstairs Passage and Kangaroo Island. This hike may seem easy on the way down, but on the return climb the incline is steep. The trail starts from Cobbler Hill Picnic Area, on Blowhole Creek Road.

Deep Creek Conservation Park is the largest portion of remaining natural vegetation on the Fleurieu Peninsula and is home to an array of native wildlife such as western grey kangaroos, short beaked echidnas and 100 species of birds that can be heard and seen while walking in the park.

Deep Creek is the only national park within 100km of Adelaide that offers bush camping. Four campgrounds are accessible by 2WD and one is ‘hike-in’ only and situated on the Heysen trail, making it an ideal environment for a family adventure.

The 15 walking trails in the park provide spectacular scenery of Backstairs Passage, Kangaroo Island and the rugged Deep Creek Valley. The walks range from easy to very difficult so accommodating for all ages and abilities.  The walking trail network in Deep Creek Conservation Park includes sections of the famous Heysen Trail.

More information is available on the Deep Creek Conservation Park website.
