Nene Valley Conservation Park is a protected area in the Australian state of South Australia located in the localities of Blackfellows Caves and Nene Valley in the state's south-east about 35 kilometres (22 miles) south west of the municipal seat of Mount Gambier and about 18 kilometres (11 miles) west north west of Port MacDonnell.[2][5]

The conservation park was proclaimed under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972 on 14 December 1972.[3]

The following state of significance was published in 1980:

Nene Valley Conservation Park preserves an area of vegetation typical of sandy coasts in the south-east of South Australia. This vegetation complex has suffered through the effects of clearing and grazing throughout much of its former range.[6]

The conservation park is classified as an IUCN Category III protected area.[1]
