Walk through one of the most diverse and best-preserved woodland areas remaining in the Mount Lofty Ranges. Grey box woodland (Euralyptus microcarpa) is an endangered ecosystem. Once common across Adelaide, clearing has reduced it to remnants in the Adelaide Hills. Just off the trail on Sir Edwin Avenue you'll find historic sugar gum plantings, the Hawthorn Maze and Belair Railway Station.
An off-road stroller would be suitable in dry conditions. Some sections of the trail can become waterlogged, slippery or muddy during winter or wet weather.

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.
