Para Wirra features a stunning bush landscape covered with leafy eucalypt trees featuring Pink Gums, Blue Gums and glorious golden wattles in spring. The park’s fantastic network of scenic drives and bushwalking trails offer good opportunities to spot kangaroos and some of the park’s 120 bird species.
The Barossa Goldfields attracted some five thousand frenetic fortune-hunters when gold fever flared here briefly in the late 1800s. The remnants of their labours can be seen within the Para Wirra Recreation Park – follow the interpretive signs along two interesting walking trail loops of 1.2km and 5km.. You never know…they might have missed some!!
Para Wirra offers excellent recreational facilities including a bush oval, picnic and barbecue facilities.
