Wind your way past Old Government House and the State Flora Nursery, then stop for a rest at the Adventure Playground.
This gently sloping trail features natural and heritage sites. It passes majestic old red gums and blue gums, as well as endangered ecosystem of grey box woodland.
Find a quite spot along the trail to stand or sit quietly and watch some of Belair's most beautiful birds. Nectar-feeding birds are attracted here almost all-year-round by various blossoming gums. The noisiest and most colourful species are lorikeets and rosellas. Wildflowers are prominent in spring in the bushland along Workanda Creek.
The wide gravelled surface is suitable for most abilities, and for strollers. There are numerous flat rocks scattered along the trail for suitable as seating rest spots.

About the region
Set in beautiful natural bushland, Belair National Park is just 25 minutes from Adelaide city centre. This is South Australia’s oldest national park, and is home to Old Government House – a significant heritage building. Also in the park is State Flora, the oldest plant nursery in South Australia and still going strong today. The park remains one of the few relatively undisturbed areas of native vegetation in the Adelaide Hills region, making it an important refuge for native plants and animals.
