Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta is a new national park in Adelaide’s southern suburbs. The park is located 16 km south of Adelaide on Majors Road in O’Halloran Hill.
The new adventure playground and visitor hub is now open to the public. The adventure playground features three slides, a seesaw, spinner, fossil dig area and Kaurna carvings and sculptures set across 7,000 square metres, making it one of the biggest nature play spaces in South Australia.
There are also rope and log climbing elements, a pendulum swing, cubby building, a 25m long flying fox and a wide range of accessible equipment to ensure children of all abilities can enjoy the space.
The adventure playground is surrounded by a purpose-built visitor hub that includes shelters, BBQs, toilets, picnic areas, carparks and heritage buildings.
The former O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park located adjacent to the Glenthorne property is now part of Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta.
This park is open for walkers, cyclists and horses (only on designated tracks).

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.
6. Use our maps through the Avenza Mapa app while in the park and never take a wrong turn again.
A park management plan will soon be developed for the Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta precinct which will outline permitted activities and also any fees, if applicable.
