Belair National Park, Belair
The Friends of Belair National Park are part of a SA wide 'Friends' network that ranges from the Simpson Desert in the far north to Dingly Dell at the bottom tip of the state.Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Belair trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
The group seeks to further the basic philosophy of the Park - that it should be regarded primarily as a place preserving the natural environment in which users can see and experience that environment.
The objectives of the Friends of Belair National Park as stated in our constitution are:
To provide voluntary assistance to Belair National Park in close cooperation and liaison with the staff.
To raise funds for special projects to benefit Belair National Park and for administration and social activities of the Friends of Belair National Park.
To provide cultural and social activities for the enjoyment of Members and the public.
To provide support for the protection and preservation of the natural and historic values of Belair National Park.
South Australia leads the nation with its Friends of Parks network. At the instigation of the State Government and the Nature Conservation Society, volunteer Friends groups were encouraged from the early 1980s to allow community members to assist in the management of the State's parks and reserves, and to encourage enjoyment of the State's natural and cultural heritage.
When an average hourly rate of pay is placed on the work that the Friends carry out each year, an estimated $5-6 million worth of work is performed on behalf of the Parks system each year. This includes all hands on work in the field and anything that is carried out in support of this activity.
Belair National Park Reviews
Belair National park so beautiful, so many hikes and walks and dogs are allowed on leash. Just heaven for people like us. We hope we will be back more »
Stunning.. one of the smaller Adelaide national parks located just off the main road in the foot hills. Suitable for all the family and a must for toursists. The roads in the park are fantastic smooth... more »
I love checking out the trails here, there are lots of picnic areas here too and many a koala and kangaroo will be seen when we are wandering around, I think if you are taking a bike though it can be a slight let down because of inconsistent signage, not enough signs tell you where cyclists are meant to go and we found quite a few times we had ended up on tracks that were impossible to ride on (stairs and really narrow paths). Definitely take thicker clothes on some tracks as thorny bushes can hurt and don't wear your best clothes as it can get quite dusty in parts, Belair national Park can be quite wild in many places but that's also what can make it beautiful
Large park with a number of walks ranging from novice to expert. Walking tracks provide a good tour of what the park has to offer, and are all in a loop that allow you to return to your origin. There is a fee for most car parks on entrance, however, if you are lucky (and willing to walk a bit more) you can find a free parking space a bit further out from the designated car parks to save the entrance cost. Abundance of wildlife, almost guaranteed to see at least one koala.
