Enjoy the undu­lat­ing hills with native scenery of rugged ridges and a vari­ety of native plants and ani­mals along Black Hill Con­ser­va­tion Park’s exten­sive net­work of walk­ing trails. The park con­tains a wide vari­ety of flo­ra that offers a stun­ning dis­play of native flow­ers in the spring includ­ing many del­i­cate and colour­ful orchid species. While vis­it­ing the park, take a walk through the land­scaped Wild­flower Gar­den that dates back to the late 1940s.

The park cov­ers an area of 684 hectares and fea­tures the low sheoaks which give Black Hill its name. The foliage of the sheoaks grad­u­al­ly matures to a dark rusty, almost black colour, as sum­mer pro­gress­es. As you look from the Ade­laide Plains, the hills appear to be black in colour.

Maps on your mobile

If you have a smart­phone or tablet you can down­load the free Aven­za Map app and have inter­ac­tive nation­al park maps on hand when you need them.

The app uses your device’s built-in GPS to plot your real-time loca­tion with­in the park onto a map. The app can be used with­out a net­work con­nec­tion and with­out roam­ing charges. You can also mea­sure area and dis­tance, plot pho­tos and drop place­mark pins.

2. Open up the app and click the shop­ping cart icon.
3. Click Find’ and type the name of the nation­al park or reserve you are look­ing for.
4. Click on the map you are after and install it (all our maps are free).
5. You will now find a list of your installed maps on the home page of the Aven­za Maps app.

We’ve worked with Google to film more than 600km of walk­ing trails, park roads, camp­grounds and water­ways in some of our most beau­ti­ful places. Click to see what the parks offer and the avail­able facil­i­ties before you go. This is an espe­cial­ly great tool if you have acces­si­bil­i­ty needs, are vis­it­ing with peo­ple of vary­ing ages or fit­ness lev­els or are push­ing a pram and want to view a trail before leav­ing home.
