National Parks and Wildlife SA has opened the fire-affected section of the park. You are able to enjoy walking along its peaceful tracks and seeing the Park recover. Please care for the Park’s flora and fauna inhabitants by keeping to the tracks, and especially no dogs are allowed.

We recognise the traditional owners

The Friends of Scott Creek Conservation Park acknowledges that the land we work on is the traditional country of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains. We pay respect to Elders past and present and recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land. We acknowledge that this is of continuing importance to the Kaurna people living today. We extend this respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who both visit the Park and also have an abiding relationship with it.
