Mount George Conservation ParkFree
This park was traditionally the land of the Peramangk Peoples. During the 1840s much of the surrounding area was cleared by European settlers for farming and market gardens. Today, due to the conservation efforts of the local community and the region's cool winter conditions, Mount George Conservation Park features a great variety of vegetation and spring flowers.
There are many walking trails to explore in the park, ranging in duration from 15 minutes to 2 hours. A section of the Heysen Trail also passes through the park. The park is divided into two zones. You can walk your dog in the recreation zone, between Mount George Road and Cox Creek, providing you keep it on a lead and under your control at all times.
As you enter the recreation area, marvel at the majestic Mountain Gums. Look out for pea flowers, ground-hugging correas and a variety of delightful native orchids. Many native birds can be seen around the trees and shrubs, including superb blue wrens, red-browed finches, white-throated tree creepers and scarlet robins. Many mammals and reptiles also exist in the park.
