A new era for our parks
Parks 2025 is a collection of investment initiatives designed to help build the capacity of parks across our state to conserve our natural landscapes and wildlife, activate nature-based tourism, boost the state economy and strengthen local communities.
Parks 2025 launched in March 2020 and included:
Additional funding throughout 2020 brings the total investment in our parks since March 2018 to more than $130 million. This investment will fund a range of new projects and will further enhance South Australia’s reputation as a world-class eco-tourism destination.
New projects include:
- rebuilding bushfire-affected tourism attractions in Kangaroo Island’s national parks
- developing new kayak access, walking trails and day visitor infrastructure at the popular South Para, Barossa and Warren reservoirs
- creating new visitor experiences, upgraded campgrounds and improved amenities in Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park
- improving coastal tourism experiences through upgraded roads and campgrounds in Eyre Peninsula parks
- upgrading infrastructure including trails, amenities and car park at Mount Lofty Precinct
- creating a new mountain biking and hiking destination on the Fleurieu Peninsula
- upgraded campgrounds and amenities in the Flinders Ranges
- upgrading local park infrastructure across the state.
