We are working closely with the community, Traditional Owners and southern park rangers to ensure Glenthorne National Park will be a thriving environmental and recreational precinct where all South Australians can enjoy the health benefits of visiting national parks and spending time in nature.

Glenthorne Partnership

The Glenthorne Partnership was created to provide important community insight, ideas and perspectives, and help make decisions to ensure the park meets community needs and expectations.

The group includes community members with connections to surrounding ‘Friends of Parks’ volunteer groups, the Kaurna community, the City of Marion, the local business association and local R-12 school.

Meet the Glenthorne Partnership members.

Traditional Owners

The Kaurna People are the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters of the greater Adelaide region, including the new Glenthorne National Park.

Working together to achieve a shared vision will help strengthen respect for Kaurna Culture, support the Kaurna People in their aspirations for the future and benefit the creation and management of Glenthorne National Park for all park visitors.
