Katarapko National Park


Katarapko features over 9,500 hectares of black box, red gum and lignum covered floodplains and wetlands alive with aquatic bird species. Katarapko Creek and Eckerts Creek are significant waterways that flow through the park and provide great canoe adventuring and are very important habitats for native fish. The Ngak Indau Wetland trail is ideal for viewing wetland birdlife, with a bird hide for the avid birdwatchers. Rilli Island, Media Island and Kapunda Island Conservation Parks are also part of Katarapko.

Katarapko has three entrances: Lock 4 entrance (Draper Road, via Berri), Eckert’s Creek entrance (via Lower Winkie Road) and Katarapko Creek entrance (via Katarapko Crescent). Visitors may access any area of the Park from these entrances. There are also a total of 55 campsites within this section of the Park.

There are a number of trails for walkers and bike riders of all ages to explore the Park and learn about the natural and cultural history.
