Brownhill Creek and Belair Circuit is a 13.7km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Brownhill Creek Recreation Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 4hrs to complete.


This loop hike traverses the Brownhill Creek valley, through and beyond Brownhill Creek Recreation Park, up the Yurrebilla Trail and into Belair National Park. Following the Yurrebilla Trail through Belair National Park, the trail passes Belair Railway Station, with a short section following local roads and walking paths in to Randall Park. With rewarding views over the Adelaide Plains, the Park is a former quarry and largely undeveloped, but traversed by numerous unsignposted walking trails and fire tracks. The City of Mitcham, as of mid 2015, has plans to redevelop the park and upgrade the Park’s trail infrastructure. As of mid-2017 some of the works are underway. At the bottom of Randall Park, the route returns to Brownhill Creek through the Mitcham Cemetery.

These directions commence in Brownhill Creek, and walk in a clockwise directions:
