Start the day off right with a big breakfast from either the comfort of your own cabin or find a spot in a field to sit down and take in the beauty that Belair National Park has to offer. With plenty of bird life and kangaroos around in the morning, be sure to keep a keen eye open for the park’s gorgeous creatures.
Lorikeet loop is a great first walk to take trough Belair National Park. Being around a 1.5 hour walk (3km) that is relatively flat, it is a great walk for dog walking, jogging, wildlife spotting. The walk is also wheelchair accessible. As the name suggests, there are plenty of rainbow lorikeets on this walk so be sure to bring your camera!

One of our favourite walks in South Australia’s Belair National Park is the Waterfall Hike. It is 3 hours (6.5km circuit) and is a fairly moderate hike. Surrounded in shrubs, with plenty of wildlife this walk is truly amazing. Keep your eyes up in the trees and you’ll be sure to spot a handful of koalas.
You’ve just taken a long walk so be sure to treat yourself to a nice lunch. If you’re not feeling the idea of making yourself a picnic you could stop by Blackwood and pick up some great food from one of the many restaurants and take-away spots.
Old Government House
The Old Government house sits in the heart of the Belair National Park and is set in a gorgeous garden. Open the first and third Sunday of each month and public holiday from 1 to 4pm. For history buffs and architecture fans this is a great place to stop by when in the park!

Just need to keep an eye open (and an Instagram filter ready).
