Redbanks Conservation Park
Redbanks CP is around 170km from Adelaide, off the Barrier Highway.
It has one campground with drop toilets and not much else! The vegetation is all low lying shrub and has very little shade. During summer, it would be awful place to be stuck there camping!!
The campground is situated a distance away from the gorge (pictured left). There was meant to be permanent waterholes to see, but we did not see any water during our visit....just a lot of red earth and dried up creekbeds.
We went in October, so there were plenty of wildflowers near the red cliffs of the gorge, and the cliffs are quite interesting to see as you can see the different layers that are indicative of past climates.
This would be a spot to visit on a day trip, but for children I think they would struggle to find interesting walks and places to visit there. The flies were dreadful in October, so I can only imagine what it would be like in summer months.
