I'm a resident of the northern suburbs of Adelaide, keen to share interesting ideas for weekend activities, especially but not exclusively, north of Gepps Cross.

[ADVERT]Para Wirra Recreation Park is a natural bushland location 40 kilometres north-east of Adelaide that is inhabited by kangaroos, euros, emus and an assortment of other Australian wildlife. The park is open every day of the year except Christmas Day, from 8am until sunset. There is a $10 ($8 concession) per car entry fee which is payable at the self-registration station just inside the front gate.

Bush walking is the most popular activity undertaken in the park, but there is also the North Oval, complete with cricket pitch. There are numerous picnic tables around the park, barbecues and toilets. Although you should never feed wild birds and animals, you will find the smell of the BBQ cooking will bring inquisitive emus out. They are quite bold. Dogs are welcome if kept on a lead. The Park's walking trails are detailed in a brochure which is available at the self-registration station. It is also available for download here.
