Glenthorne Farm

Glenthorne Farm is a 208-hectare site 17 kilometres south of the CBD that has been a farm, an Army training site and a CSIRO research station since it was established in 1839.

The area will be opened into a greenspace for the public to use. Ideas include an accessible farm where families can learn to grow and harvest their own food; a network of trails for walking or cycling; and a welcoming café.

A New Future for Glenthorne Farm also suggests a nature playground, like the ones that have been hugely successful at Morialta Conservation Park and Cobbler Creek. Another idea is a beginner campground where rangers would give tips to first-time campers so they can have the confidence to go out and enjoy the camping opportunities in our national parks.

There has been a long history of community interest in the future of Glenthorne Farm and many interesting and exciting ideas have been put forward.

We plan to bring together the voices of local communities and other stakeholders to co-design a future for Glenthorne Farm and ensure that it becomes a valued asset used and enjoyed by many.
