RED BANKS CONSERVATION PARK

RED BANKS CONSERVATION PARK

Red Banks Conservation Park is located 15 minutes east of Burra via the Barrier Highway.

Take the fascinating 'Landscapes of Change' interpretive walking trail, featuring a scenic landscape of meandering, rugged earth gorges, spring-fed waterholes and remnant old growth mallee trees. 

Palaeontologists have called this area one of the richest megafauna sites in Australia. Up until approximately 65,00 years ago, Red Banks was home to Diprotodons, a huge marsupial which weighed about two tonnes, often likened to a giant wombat. Learn what the landscape was like when these large marsupials were alive. 

The Diprotodon fossils may be viewed at the Burra Railway Station seven days between 11am - 1pm.
