Only a 25-minute drive from Adelaide in the picturesque Adelaide Hills, Belair National Park is South Australia's oldest park and is a favourite with locals and a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Black Hill Conservation Park is situated approximately 12 kilometres north-east of Adelaide in the foothills of the Mount Lofty Ranges. The park rises distinctly from the Adelaide Plains, its densely vegetated contours standing boldly behind the north-eastern suburbs.
The largest of the named city parks, some 17 hectares, Bonython Park/Tulya Wodli attracts many thousands of visitors annually. The Park, situated between Port Road and the River Torrens hosts a range of events including Australian and international circuses and the Schutzenfest in January.
The Coast to Vines Trail is a great day or weekend destination on the Fleurieu Peninsula. From the coastal suburb of Marino to the rural beauty of the Willunga Township, the Rail Trail offers a scenic and easy ride along the former rail corridor. Take in spectacular vineyard vistas and changing landscapes as you make your way through the renowned McLaren Vale wine district. With historic towns such as Old Reynella and Willunga, there are plenty of good places to stay and eat.
Elder Park is located between the City of Adelaide and North Adelaide on the banks of the Torrens Lake. The park is host to many community events including Carols by Candlelight, Symphony under the Stars and the Adelaide Festival.
