Onkaparinga River National Park

National Parks and Reserves

In Onkaparinga River National Park, diverse hiking trails take you to cliff tops with magnificent views, or down to permanent rock pools teeming with life.

Situated at the eastern end of the park, pink gum campground has 11 campsites, including three that are suitable for caravans, a toilet, washing-up facilities and fire pits for use outside the fire ban season.

You’ll see rugged ridge tops and the narrow river valley of the spectacular Onkaparinga Gorge. This park protects some of the finest remaining pockets of remnant vegetation in the Southern Adelaide region. Wherever you go, you’ll be among native wildlife such as birds, koalas, kangaroos and possums – you may even spot an echidna.
