Hale Conservation Park

Experience the tranquil setting of Hale Conservation Park. Characterised by its diverse landscape and steep rocky ridges, the park is home to some of Australia's more secretive mammals and conserves the oyster bay cypress pine.

Challenging walking trails provide spectacular views of the South Para Valley and reservoir. The trail to the South Para River passes from the highlands to the river crossing while the trail to the north eastern boundary of the park follows the creek line to emerge in grasslands on the outskirts of Williamstown.

For a few weeks in winter, the glorious flame heath flowers across much of the park with its red blooms providing impressive photographic opportunities.


Hale Conservation Park is located 60km north east of Adelaide. Access is via Mt Pleasant Road.
