This is a per­fect park for immers­ing your­self in nature – for walk­ing, pic­nick­ing, and observ­ing native ani­mal life. The park is also home to the Barossa Gold­fields, where you can dis­cov­er the ruins and the his­to­ry of a once thriv­ing min­ing operation.

There are over 100 species of birds liv­ing in the park, includ­ing the cheeky emus you’ll see patrolling the pic­nic grounds. You can see kan­ga­roos graz­ing at dawn and dusk, and on a warm day beard­ed drag­ons and sleepy lizards bask in the sun­shine. If you’re in luck you might also spot a short-beaked echid­na, a shy crea­ture whose dig­gings can be found through­out the park.

Please note that camp­ing fees are chang­ing in this park from Fri­day 1 July 2022.

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.

Google Street View

Want to explore a trail before you leave home or use Google Maps to nav­i­gate straight from your door to the trailhead?

We’ve worked with Google to film more than 600km of walk­ing trails, park roads, camp­grounds and water­ways in some of our most beau­ti­ful places. Click to see what the parks offer and the avail­able facil­i­ties before you go. This is an espe­cial­ly great tool if you have acces­si­bil­i­ty needs, are vis­it­ing with peo­ple of vary­ing ages or fit­ness lev­els or are push­ing a pram and want to view a trail before leav­ing home.
