This sub­ur­ban park holds some unex­pect­ed attrac­tions. Come and dis­cov­er the mag­nif­i­cent rem­nant grey box euca­lypts envi­ron­ment and take in the 360 degree views of the sur­round­ing Ade­laide plains, coast­line and hills.

You can ride your bike on roads open to the pub­lic or use the spe­cif­ic cycling trails and tracks on offer in Shep­herds Hill Recre­ation Park. If you are a bit more adven­tur­ous with your bike rid­ing, the park offers a bicy­cle jumps-track.

A horse rid­ing and Archery club are locat­ed in the park. Please con­tact the respec­tive clubs if you would like to become a mem­ber to use these facilities.

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.

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.
