Biodiversity Trails

Discover our biodiversity sites, spy some rare species and explore the beautiful natural environment that surrounds our city.

Victoria Park Biodiversity Trail

Enjoy this short trail that showcases one of our most important biodiversity sites and perhaps glimpse some rare species found in Adelaide. The trail takes a turn through the nationally-threatened ecosystem Grey Box (Eucalyptus microcarpa) Derived Native Grassland, which we are managing to conserve in the future. Trail signs allow you to learn about the interesting history of this ecosystem and why it is important. 

You can find the start of the trail in the fenced area at the southern end of Pakapakanthi / Victoria Park. Click here to find out more.
