Description

Come along for a walk through the eastern section of the Scott Creek Conservation Park, one of the hidden gems of the Adelaide Hills. The Park’s 706 hectares of sloped valleys, lush creek lines and rounded ridgetops are home to a wide variety of native plants, birds and animals. Although damaged by fire in 2021, the park’s regeneration is now well underway and well worth a visit!

Note: This 9km walk has lots of ups and downs. If you have a good walking fitness and are looking to challenge yourself, then this walk could be for you!

BIOSECURITY MEASURES – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.

Experience
Some bushwalking experience preferred as this is a challenging, undulating walk. Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing and carry sufficient water for the conditions forecast on the day. Walking poles will be handy if you regularly use them but not essential. Bring snacks for a morning tea break (we will need to stand, sit on the ground or lean on a fence post).
