Glenthorne opens its gates to visitors

Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta, Adelaide’s newest national park, has officially opened its gates to the public.

On Sunday 2 August, a temporary 4 kilometre loop trail around significant areas of the new park was unveiled, providing visitors with the opportunity to visit and watch the creation of the park unfold over the coming months and years.

The trail features interpretive signage which tells the story of Glenthorne’s rich history and what’s in store for the park’s future, and is accessible from the Glenthorne Ranger Station carpark on Majors Rd from 8am-7pm every day.

Visitor information, including a trail map is available on the National Parks and Wildlife Service South Australia website
