Finniss Conservation Park is a small conservation park, located on the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia. This park is close to Mount Magnificent Conservation Park and has the Heysen Trail running along its western side. This is the only walking track through the park.[1]

Vegetation varies from open woodlands to pasture. Views over the Finniss Valley can be obtained from a high, rocky plateau on the western side of the park.[1]
