Seddon Conservation Park is a small nature reserve on Kangaroo Island, South Australia. It was dedicated in 1971 to protect a representative sample of the lateritic plateau vegetation of the central part of the island.
The park has an area of 23 ha (57 acres) and lies about 5.5 km (3.4 mi) south of the town of Parndana and 40 km (25 mi) south-west of Kingscote. The Eleanor River flows through the park. The vegetation is mainly a woodland association of Eucalyptus leucoxylon and E. fasciculosa, with open shrubland of E. cosmophylla and E. baxteri over Allocasuarina muelleriana, Xanthorrhoea tateana and Melaleuca uncinata.
