Black Hill Conservation Park

Enjoy spectacular scenery of rugged ridges and a wide variety of native plants and animals along Black Hill Conservation Park's extensive network of walking trails.

The park covers an area of 684 hectares and features the low sheoaks which give Black Hill its name. The foliage of the sheoaks gradually matures to a dark rusty, almost black colour, as summer progresses. As you look from the Adelaide Plains, the hills appear to be black in colour.

The park also contains a wide variety of flora that offers a stunning display of native flowers in the spring including many delicate and colourful orchid species.

While you're visiting the park, take a walk through the landscaped Wildflower Garden that dates back to the late 1940s.
