History

Cox Scrub was acquired in 1969 and dedicated as a Conservation Park on 5th March 1970. Prior to this time the park was owned by Mr V Cox, an apiarist of Ashbourne, who preserved the park in its natural state for the over wintering of his honey bees.

Since then, additional parcels of land have been added to the park including the picturesque Cole Crossing picnic area, in 1982.

The Friends of Cox Scrub Conservation Park was formerly part of the Friends of Central Fleurieu Parks. In 2005, the group was renamed to identify it with a specific park. The group is also involved in the care of Bullock Hill, Finniss and Mt Magnificent Conservation Parks.
