Piccaninnie Ponds Conservation Park

- 28 Jan

Piccaninnie Ponds Rd
Wye 5291, SA

Explore the spectacular underwater world of Piccaninnie Ponds which is recognised as a wetland of international importance.

The freshwater rising to the surface under pressure has eroded a weakness in the limestone to form The Chasm. This same process has formed the large underwater cavern known as The Cathedral creating its majestic white walls of sculptured and scalloped limestone. Be sure to visit the Lower South East Marine Park which also offers plenty of diving experiences.

On land, take a walk along the beach and see the freshwater springs bubbling up onto the sand.

There is also a walking trail through coastal wattle and beard heath to the ponds outlet. On the way, view the southern ocean and the lower south east marine park. The walk then leads inland via boardwalks into silky tea-tree and cutting grass to a lookout where views of the wetland and bamboo reed and bulrush can be seen.
