Fort Glanville Conservation Park

Fort Glanville Conservation Park represents a significant period in South Australia's European colonial history. The fort was built in 1880 and has remained largely unaltered.

On the third Sunday afternoon of every month, between September and May, witness the spectacle of a full historical re-enactment by Fort Glanville Association members. In full military costume they recreate the past with military drill demonstrations, including cannon firing.

The fort can be hired for a variety of uses including concerts and community activities. The parade ground and visitor centre (which has kitchen facilities) are also available for hire.


Fort Glanville Conservation Park is located 12km north west of Adelaide. Access is via Military Road. Public transport to this park from Adelaide CBD is available.

Opening times

Every third Sunday of the month, from 1pm to 5pm between September and May.
