Kaiser Stuhl Conservation Park
Located in Flaxman Valley, nestled in the Barossa Ranges between Tanunda and Angaston, this park offers excellent opportunities for bushwalkers. There are two walking trails which lead through a variety of landscapes including creeks, rocky outcrops, areas of low forest, scrub and open grassland. The park has panoramic views across the ranges to the Barossa Valley, fascinating rock formations and a diverse range of flora and fauna. The park has approximately 400 plant species and is home to native birds such as honeyeaters, tree-creepers, rosellas and lorikeets, blue wrens, finches and thornbills. You’re sure to spot a western grey kangaroo or two, especially early mornings and on dusk feeding on open grassland areas. Euros can occasionally be seen on the rocky ridges of the higher sections of the park.
The Stringybark Loop (1 hour loop, 2km) traverses the flat regenerating areas of the park and some dense stringybark forest, providing a taste of the park’s natural landscapes.
The Wallowa Hike (2 hours one way, 4.7km) passes through the range of different landforms and vegetation of the park. Near the pine forest, a lookout on top of a large granite rock outcrop offers views of other impressive outcrops and a panoramic view over the ranges to the valley floor below.
