A popular destination for bushwalkers and birdwatchers, Mount George Conservation Park's landscape ranges from wetlands to open forests with rocky outcrops.
The area was once part of the tribal land of the Peramangk Aboriginal people and by the 1840s much of the surrounding area was cleared and farmed. Today, due to the conservation efforts of the community and the region's cool winter conditions, the park features a great variety of vegetation and spring flowers.
Here you will find pea flowers, ground-hugging correas and a variety of delightful native orchids. Wedge-tailed eagles may be seen circling the skies above the park, while superb blue wrens, red-browed finches, white-throated treecreepers and scarlet robins are often observed around the trees and shrubs.
A section of the Heysen Trail also passes through the park.
You can walk your dog in the recreation zone of this park, between Mount George Road and Cox Creek, providing that it remains under control on a lead. Dogs are not permitted in the conservation zone of this park.
