O’Halloran Hill Circuit is a 6km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.


A loop walk in O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park. Walkers, dogs (on-leash), mountain bikers and horse riders are welcome in the park. The park consists mostly of grassy hills and gullies with some trees.

Unfortunately there are minimal facilities and no trail or track signs. Entrance gates are numbered. The park isn’t well maintained, fire tracks and walking trails can become overgrown with grasses during Spring. Some online reviews of the park aren’t flattering, but the park offers a large open space accessible to many nearby suburbs, with the possibility of various walking loops.

We’ve indicated a 6km loop. The loop can be accessed from numerous gates along the way, including:

The park is comparable to Cobbler Creek Recreation Park, being predominately grassy rolling hills which were previously farmed, and in suburban location and primarily existing for recreation use. That park had significant upgrades in 2013 and again in 2016 to develop formal walking and cycling trails, and to construct visitor facilities. O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park would arguably benefit from a similar treatment, especially given the number of people living in surrounding suburbs. The 2016 vision for the park to be included into a larger Glenthorne National Park could achieve this.
