In Onkaparinga River National Park, diverse hiking trails take you to cliff tops with magnificent views, or down to permanent rock pools teeming with life. You’ll see rugged ridge tops and the narrow river valley of the spectacular Onkaparinga Gorge. This park protects some of the finest remaining pockets of remnant vegetation in the Southern Adelaide region. Wherever you go, you’ll be among native wildlife such as birds, koalas, kangaroos and possums - you may even spot an echidna. Areas of the park were used as farmland for many years, so you can also discover heritage-listed huts and the ruins of houses built in the 1880s.

Shared-use trails also offer opportunities for mountain bike riders and horse riders to enjoy the rugged beauty of the park

Just next door, to the west of the national park, Onkaparinga River Recreation Park boasts wetlands, boardwalks to explore and kayaking opportunities.
