Para Wirra Conservation Park
Para Wirra Conservation Park is a 1,417-hectare protected area of 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, bushwalking trails and mountain biking trails offer good opportunities to spot kangaroos, emus 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 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 and a terrific new nature playground installed in early 2018.
