Spread over almost 835 acres, this is South Australia’s first national park that was established in 1891 and is one of the top Adelaide places to see. The place goes much beyond a park and stands as one of the most prominent cultural and historical landmarks. It’s great outdoors, comprising lakes and vast thickets, lies within the ranges of Mount Lofty and remains an undisturbed area for the native flora and fauna to thrive. There are adventure playgrounds, tennis courts, and huge ovals here for you to try your hands on sports. See the thousands of wildflowers and wildlife like the Shy Southern Bandicoot, kangaroos, emus, etc.
