Great for picnics, short walks or a day hike. Plenty of birds and koalas. Take at least a litre of water and where sturdy shoes

I hiked in this park a number of times, there are trails suitable for any level of bush walkers. Ghost tree gully trail is challenging. A big section of 54km Yurebilla trail in in this park. Entry from Gorge road, hike lodge track will guarantee a surprise to you.

I have been to Black Hill a few times, as the walk has a stunning view. There are also historical sites along the way, with gorgeous ruins besides the track. However this walk can be quite challenging, so I would not recommend it to people with knee troubles or really young children.

Who would've thought that we have this beautiful park right here in the suburbs of Adelaide. Completed a 14km hike through the conservation park and reached the Summit!! Placed our rock on the rock pile!!

Black Hill Conservation Park also covers the old Athelstone Wildflower Garden at the top of Addison Ave, in September you can still see native orchids up and around the garden. On the other side of Addison Ave we walked to look at the scrub and even saw a wallaby, so leave the dogs in the car please.

Black Hill is a challenging arena for the hiker and Trail Runner alike. There are various entrances to the park, with paths varying in difficulty. The inclines are relatively steep, however the views from the top are breathtaking.

We did not walk the trails up the hills but were sightseeing the countryside driving along the scenic roads around Black Hill and Adelaide Hills. From Adelaide CBD about 30mins drive; hoping to catch a glimpse of any native wild animals from the foothills. Just a few minutes driving into the park area, we saw a row of big white-bark... More

I've seen one person on three visits to Black Hill Conservation Park. That's part of the beauty of it. If you do the summit walk in the last 1200m or so of the approach is rocky - you'll need capable boots. There's 2m high rocky cairn at the summit and minimal signing otherwise. Except on the main fire trail just... More

A really good hike for those needing a bit of exercise. Steep but the views are well worth the effort! Occasionaly wildlife (koalas and kangaroos) makes the kids happy, Watch for snakes in summer though!
