Cle­land Nation­al Park con­serves an impor­tant area of bush­land sit­u­at­ed in the Ade­laide Hills face zone. A fan­tas­tic net­work of walk­ing and cycling trails intro­duces you to the diverse native wildlife, cul­tur­al her­itage and spec­tac­u­lar views of the Ade­laide Hills and surrounds.

One of South Aus­trali­a’s most pop­u­lar walk­ing trails tra­vers­es this unique area from Water­fall Gul­ly to Mt Lofty Sum­mit. Many of the walk­ing trails in Cle­land are steep with poten­tial loose ter­rain. Mobile phone cov­er­age can be patchy in some areas. Take maps, wear appro­pri­ate gear for hik­ing and take plen­ty of drink­ing water as trails may take you a dis­tance from your start­ing location.

There is also a selec­tion of trails and fire tracks where you can ride your moun­tain bike on shared use trails with­in the park. Some of these pop­u­lar trails include the Cle­land link trail between Crafers and Mt Lofty, Wine Shan­ty trail, Cham­bers and Adven­ture loops.

Some of the pop­u­lar sites to vis­it in Cle­land Nation­al Park are:

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.

1. Down­load the Aven­za Maps app from the app store (iOS/Android) whilst you are still in range (its free!).
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.
