Penola Conservation Park

National Parks and Reserves

Penola Conservation Park protects a remnant of the River Red Gum (Eucalyptus camaldulensis) lined swamps that were widespread in the southeast of South Australia.

Located 10 kilometres west of Penola, this park contains a wide variety of plant associations and bird habitats, with 370 plant species and 97 bird species being recorded. Spring is the best time to visit the park to see native plants in flower, however there is always something of interest to see or hear.

The car park has two rustic picnic tables formed from giant River Red Gum trees. You can sit and enjoy the quiet or explore the park along the nature trail. The two and a half kilometre trail takes you through several different plant associations and over the swamp across a boardwalk. Interpretive signs explain some of the features along the walk.

Pets are not permitted.
