Scott Creek is a sig­nif­i­cant con­ser­va­tion area and home to many threat­ened species of the Mount Lofty Ranges.

The park is an impor­tant link in the veg­e­ta­tion cor­ri­dors of the hills and was once part of a major trav­el­ling route for the Kau­r­na Peoples.

From the 1850s, the area was mined for both cop­per and sil­ver. By the time pro­duc­tion stopped in 1887 due to eco­nom­ic rea­sons, the mine had pro­duced 310 kilo­grams of silver.

Dis­cov­er rem­nants of the mine ruins includ­ing an engine house, stone chim­ney, the mine office and sev­er­al min­ing shafts along the park’s inter­pre­tive walk­ing trails. Please note that Eys Tun­nel is now closed due to the risk to pub­lic safety.
