Hear how to pronounce this park name

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.
