Deep Creek Circuit is a 12km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Deep Creek Conservation Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 6hrs to complete.


There are four things, in my mind, that make a hike a good one. Hills – where would the fun be in hiking without them; views – which one can so often naturally find at the top of those hills; ecosystem diversity; and water – to look at, to swim in. The Deep Creek Circuit hike in Deep Creek Conservation Park has all those elements, all along some nicely maintained trails.

The diversity of ecosystems throughout this circuit hike make it all the more enjoyable. From the Xanthorrhoea hillsides, the grassy hill tops, to the closed-in humid valley nooks, and the stands of tall eucalypts, the ecosystems offer a variety that stands in contrast to the cleared farmland further inland. Kangaroos, echindas and blue tongue lizards are plentiful, as unfortunately, are the flies when there’s no breeze.

The hike is made up of four components, which can be hiked by themselves as shorter hikes:
