South Australia's national parks feature a range of trails that let you experience a diversity of landscapes.

Our trails cater for all levels of fitness and adventure and our classification system makes it easy to select an experience suitable for you.

The park examples provided below are a mere smattering of the walks that can be found in our parks - visit the park page you are interested in for all the details.

A hard hike requires some hiking experience and a reasonable level of fitness, as some sections of the trail can be quite steep and uneven. Suggested hard hikes:

A trek is generally physically demanding, therefore you should be an experienced bushwalker with good navigational skills. Treks often require several days to complete and pass through remote areas where the trail is unmarked.

School or large groups

If you are planning a trip for a school group or other large group, please ensure you let the individual park know of your intentions. If you intend to visit remote sections of the park or undertake any risky or strenuous activities, please ensure you let a responsible person know of your intentions, and when you anticipate returning.
