Vivonne Bay Conservation Park is a nature reserve on the south coast of Kangaroo Island, South Australia. It was dedicated in 1971 to conserve coastal country containing vegetation not already protected in Kelly Hill Conservation Park.[1]

Description[edit]

The park has an area of 887 ha, stretching from Point Ellen, at the western end of Vivonne Bay, south-westwards along the coast for about 5 km, extending inland for 3 km. The vegetation is mainly open scrub and open heath dominated by Eucalyptus diversifolia and E. rugosa, with low Calocephalus brownii shrubland on the coastal dunes and cliffs.[1]
