Mark Oliphant Conservation Park

Renamed in honour of former state Governor Sir Mark Oliphant's contribution to conservation, Mark Oliphant Conservation Park provides plenty of bushwalking opportunities to enjoy the forest landscape.

Tall forest trees, spring wildflowers and relaxing bush sounds make the park an ideal walking environment catering for all levels of fitness. Look out for the native birds that are commonly seen in the area, including the scarlet robin, golden whistler and the Adelaide rosellas.


Mark Oliphant Conservation Park is located 22km south east from Adelaide. Access is via South-Eastern Freeway.
