Baudin Conservation Park on Kangaroo Island was a family farm from 1861 to 2001.
Interpretation along the Ironstone Hill Hike that follows the original bullock track provides an insight into how the Bates family lived and worked in this area. With spectacular views across Backstairs Passage to the Fleurieu Peninsula, the hike leads to Ironstone Hill where the ruins of the Bates' cottage and a stone threshing floor remain.
While walking through the park you may encounter little penguins - which are best observed at night using a red filtered torch. Tammar wallabies and rare glossy black-cockatoos may also be seen feeding in the sheoak forest.
You may even catch a glimpse of dolphins swimming in Backstairs Passage adjoining the park.
Baudin Conservation Park is located 2km south east of Penneshaw. Access is via Frenchman's Terrace. Car parking is available at the start of Binneys Track.
