Keith

Keith is small but mighty. As a key agricultural hub, this busy country town is a vibrant and refreshing place to stop and stay, with visitors instantly enveloped by country life.

As the northern gateway to the Limestone Coast region, Keith is instantly recognisable with its magnificent Gums lining the Dukes Highway, and lush fields of Lucerne as far as the eye can see.

Don Moseley Park.

The Don Moseley Park is an iconic must stop for all families travelling in the Limestone Coast, and guaranteed coin for the memory bank.

The ridiculously cool monorail train is the main drawcard to the Park, and could well be the last of South Australia REAL fun old school play equipment and is fun for young (and old!).

With clean toilets, BBQ facilities and a stone’s throw Henry & Rose Café on the main street, this park is a great pit stop, or daily adventure for families!

Mount Monster Conservation Park.

Mount Monster Conservation Park is the start of journey into our diverse offering when it comes to environmental wonders and nature walks.

Located just 5 minutes south of the township, the Park features a number of walks and excellent picnic and BBQ facilities. Atop the granite outcrop of Mount Monster (100m above sea level), you’re rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the farming land.

Keep an eye out for local bird species, fresh wildflowers and wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies, echidnas, woodland birds, and reptiles.

Ngarkat Conservation Park.

Another fantastic natural experience, but in the opposite direction, is the Ngarkat Conservation Park.

This park features a mixture of vegetated remnant coastal sand dunes, mallee and heathlands.

The park has a network of trails ranging from ten minute walks to five hour hikes. It is also home to an array of wildlife including echidnas, pygmy-possums, dunnarts, Western Grey kangaroos, lizards and more than 120 species of birds.

One of the highlights is the view from Tyms Lookout which is a 2-3 hour hike.

Keith Dirt & Diesel.

The Keith Dirt and Diesel annual event epitomises all that is great about living in the country.

The spectacle of the Superboat racing (yeah, you heard right, a cracking inland boat race!) is just one element of a day that boasts a thrilling array of motorsport including tractor pulls, Motocross, lawnmower racing, ute muster, an aerobatic display and a demolition derby of harvesting headers and wartime army tankers! With sideshows and retail pavilions, it’s truly an event for everyone!
