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 maps). 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, the construction of new facilities and features, and the restoration of heritage buildings. As some areas of the park are still under construction please abide by onsite signage and do not enter construction zones.
Once construction is complete, you will be able to enjoy a nature play space, picnic areas, barbeque facilities and shelters, walking trails, Kaurna cultural elements and an interactive heritage precinct featuring augmented reality interpretation.
The former O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park located adjacent to the Glenthorne property is now part of Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta.
These areas join existing parks and open spaces in Adelaide’s south to form the Glenthorne Precinct, including Hallett Cove Conservation Park, Marino Conservation Park and Happy Valley Reservoir.
