We were on our way home and stopped here for an overnight stay (see Camps 6) and a short relaxing walk after a hard days drive.
The park is some 12 km east of Burra, SA
The bush is typical of the country around the area and in fact we had driven through this type of vegetation for the last 100km at least. There are a couple of walks in this area. One is for 3-4 hours, the other a shorter walk of around 1 hour, we did this latter walk late in the day, near sunset.
It's a great camping area for car/caravan based camping and has a standard park long drop toilet.
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.
