Red Banks Conservation Park

Red Banks Conservation Park features a scenic landscape of meandering rugged earth gorges, spring-fed waterholes and remnant old growth mallee trees. Palaeontologists have called this area one of the richest megafauna sites in Australia. Up until approximately 65,000 years ago, Red Banks was home to Diprotodons, a huge marsupial that weighed between one to two tonnes, often likened to a giant wombat.

Take the fascinating Landscapes of Change interpretative walking trail which pass through deep red earth gorges and permanent waterholes to learn what the landscape was like when these large marsupials were alive.
