Hissey Circuit is a 2.4km, grade 3 circuit hike, located in Para Wirra Recreation Park, South Australia. The hike should take approximately 1h to complete.

Hike Summary

Walk around the main Lake and along the shaded Wild Dog Creek.

View the Hissey Loop brochure.

The walk was originally designed for prams and those with mobility issues*, however it may not meet current standards in 2016 (there are two flights of 13 steps, and the trail is a dirt surface, not a gravel surface.)

About the region

This is a perfect park for immersing yourself in nature – for walking, picnicking, and observing native animal life. The park is also home to the Barossa Goldfields, where you can discover the ruins and the history of a once thriving mining operation.

There are over 100 species of birds living in the park, including the cheeky emus you’ll see patrolling the picnic grounds. You can see kangaroos grazing at dawn and dusk, and on a warm day bearded dragons and sleepy lizards bask in the sunshine. If you’re in luck you might also spot a short-beaked echidna, a shy creature whose diggings can be found throughout the park.
