Great trails and beautiful scenery
National parks are a resource that is a haven for our native flora and fauna. A place to unwind and take a walk in beautiful surrounds. Whether taking a long or short walk and observing the native flowers on show, it has always been a place to relax and recharge. To gather with friends and family. However, apparently they are being under utilised as not many people are stopping by to visit. There is a new campaign to raise the profile of National Parks called Discovery Days.
This is an opportunity to reconnect with nature. Come along to a National Park Discovery Day and see what you've been missing. There will be activities like mountain biking, guided walks with Friends of Parks volunteers, cycling or kayaking with a ranger, geocaching, educational activities, sausage sizzles, giveaways and more.
The Adelaide area has more than 30 national parks, including recreation and conservation parks. From Aldinga Scrub Conservation Park in the south to Para Wirra in the north, each park has its own unique mix of plants and animals, great trails and beautiful scenery.
Pack a picnic and come to these free National Park Discovery Days and try some of the fun activities on offer. The next Discovery Days will be at Belair National Park, Para Wirra Recreation Park, and Cobbler Creek Recreation Park.
