Belair National Park

Only a 25-minute drive from Adelaide in the picturesque Adelaide Hills, Belair National Park is South Australia's oldest park. You can even walk your dog in this park providing it remains under your control on a lead, making it a favourite with the locals.

There are plenty of things to see and do at the Belair National Park. The park has more than 50 bushland tennis courts, several ovals, grassy picnic areas and gas barbecues. Be on the lookout for koalas in the trees, admire wildflowers on the ground or enjoy a leisurely stroll around Playford Lake. There is also an adventure playground that will keep kids entertained for hours, with a huge wooden fort, tunnels and poles on which to balance.

The park is home to some of the Adelaide Hills significant heritage attractions so be sure to include a visit to the State Flora Nursery or join a guided tour of Old Government House and surrounding heritage gardens.

Conserving remnant vegetation and a range of threatened flora and fauna, Belair National Park is helping to protect the state's biodiversity. The park is regarded as one of Australia's 15 biodiversity hotspots, making it an important refuge for native animals.
