Wottons Scrub Circuit is a 3.6km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Kenneth Stirling Conservation Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.


Kenneth Stirling Conservation Park is actually a series of four parks. They were bequeathed by Kenneth Stirling to the people of South Australia, the parks were declared conservation park in 1990. Information about the parks is limited. We’ve featured walks in the two largest parks:

Both parks are predominately remnant native stringybark forest, similar to nearby Mt George Conservation Park. The understorey is a mixture of bracken, ferns and grasses.

Walking between points 8 and 9 on map involve some off-track walking. If you’re not confident with off-track walking, we don’t recommend this section of the route. This section, albeit small, could be disorientating for less confident hikers. We’ve provided another option below the list (to do an out-and-back walk to point 11 and return).

Read these directions in conjunction with the map.

If you’re not comfortable with some off-track walking (between points 8, 9 and 10), we recommend walking from point 1, to point 2, then turning right and heading south along Wottons Track to point 11 or 10, and returning on the same route.
