Onkaparinga River National Park and Recreation Park

Throughout the month of August, Onkaparinga River National Park and Recreation Park are being celebrated as the Park of Month – an initiative between Nature Play SA and DEWNR.

With diverse hikes along ridgetops and through the spectacular Onkaparinga Gorge, this national park offers an opportunity to abseil down rugged cliffs, take a dip in waterholes along the river and discover some of the best bushland in southern Adelaide.

In contrast, the serene wetlands of the recreation park are a great place for a family picnic, fishing, kayaking or birdwatching while strolling along the boardwalks.

Located just 35 kilometres south of Adelaide’s CBD, Onkaparinga River National Park and Recreation Park offer something for everyone to enjoy.
