Canunda is a national park in
South Australia( Australia). It is 350 km southeast of Adelaide, on the coast about 13 km southwest of Millicent. It consists of coastal dunes, limestone cliffs, and natural bushland. The beaches can be dangerous, but are popular for beach fishing.
Much of the park is accessible only to
four wheel drivevehicles and walkers.
From as far back as 10,000 years ago, members of the
Boandikgroup of Indigenous Australianslived in temporary camps along the coast during summer, and for the rest of the year they lived near inland swamps in relatively permanent huts (wurlas).
The northern end of the park was once part of Mayurra Station. The remnants of Canunda's pastoral history can be seen at Coola Outstation.
