Montacute Conservation Circuit is a 6.3km, grade 1 Circuit hike located in Montacute Conservation Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.


This hike through the rugged hills of Montacute Conservation Park is challenging, but rewarding with excellent views.

The park is remnant bushland forested with red gums, stringybarks and blue gums, and often a dense understorey.

The hike is along fire tracks which are well marked, so the hike is easy when read in conjunction with the instructions below and map. The first half of the hike (when walked anti-clockwise) is along the Heysen Trail (follow the red markers), and the second half is along the Mawson Trail (follow the purple markers). The last kilometre of the walk departs from the Mawson Trail and returns along a fire track.
