Phoenix Circuit is a 4.2km, grade 1 Circuit hike located in Para Wirra Recreation Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.
This 4.2km circuit hike explores the former mine workings of Victoria Hill, a scene of much activity in the late 1860s. Interpretive signs provide information about mine shafts, mine workings and the former town that was once here. See the former pumping station and tramway tunnels.
The trail includes Bowden Cottage, which has a collection of mining equipment on display, a picnic area, shelter and toilets. The cottage is restored and houses the Barossa Goldfields Historical Society museum.
[As at July 2016:] Unlike trails in the southern part of Para Wirra Conservation Park, the trails are very well marked, thanks to the work of the Walking Trails Support Group. Trails are well marked, with maps at checkpoints, and interpretive signage.
