Renamed in hon­our of for­mer state Gov­er­nor Sir Mark Oliphan­t’s con­tri­bu­tion to con­ser­va­tion, Mark Oliphant Con­ser­va­tion Park pro­vides plen­ty of bush­walk­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties to enjoy the for­est landscape.

Look out for the native birds that are com­mon­ly seen in the area, includ­ing the scar­let robin, gold­en whistler and the Ade­laide rosel­las. The park is also an impor­tant habi­tat for the nation­al­ly endan­gered south­ern brown bandicoot.

An increase in vis­i­ta­tion at Mark Oliphant Con­ser­va­tion Park in the Ade­laide Hills in recent years has seen a greater demand on park­ing near the Scott Creek Road entrance at Longwood. 

Nation­al Parks and Wildlife Ser­vice are cur­rent­ly work­ing on a num­ber of upgrades in the park, includ­ing an exten­sion to the exist­ing car park area, new sig­nage and bet­ter access to the sur­round­ing walk­ing trail network.
