Mount Crawford Forest covers an area of over 12,000 hectares and is managed for sustainable wood production, while also providing for the conservation of native flora and fauna and community use for recreation and events.
Land was first purchased for forestry at Mount Crawford in 1909, with commercial plantings beginning in 1914 and continuing to expand until the 1960s. Many of the original plantations have since been clear felled and replanted.
Mount Crawford’s proximity to Adelaide, just an hour’s drive from the city, also makes it a popular place to visit. Every year, thousands of visitors come to camp and enjoy hut-style accommodation, bushwalk, horse ride, fossick, mountain bike and take part in a host of organised community events!
