About the Park

Scott Creek Conservation Park (the Park) is in the Mount Loft Ranges in South Australia, which is one of Australia’s 15 National Biodiversity Hotspots.

The Park is an important biodiversity hotspot of considerable conservation value in its own right and is habitat for the Endangered Southern Brown Bandicoot (Isodoon obesulus obesulus).

Together with other substantial landholdings nearby that are owned by SA Water, Forestry SA, ElectraNet, local councils and numerous private landholders, the Park is part of one of the largest contiguous areas of remnant and revegetated native vegetation within the region.

The Park provides a variety of walking experiences from gentle slopes to higher ridges. Parts of the park are hilly and rugged, with steep slopes falling into small creeks that flow into Scott Creek, which eventually winds its way out of the Park and into the Onkaparinga River.
