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 park is now open and you can walk a 4km temporary loop trail (see map). The trail starts and ends at the park’s ranger station just off Majors Road.
The former 208-hectare Glenthorne property is being revitalised through an extensive revegetation program – an area the size of almost 80 Adelaide Ovals. Once construction is complete, visitors can expect to enjoy a nature play space and picnic area, wetland, camping facilities, walking trails and heritage precinct.
O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park is located next to the Glenthorne property and has been renamed as part of Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta.
This area will join a large precinct of existing parks and open spaces in Adelaide’s south that will span almost 1500 hectares, which is almost twice the size of Belair National Park and includes Hallett Cove Conservation Park, Marino Conservation Park and Happy Valley Reservoir, which will open to visitors by the end of 2021.
