    Wirraparinga Loop Trail, SA

The Wirraparinga Trail Loop meanders along the Brownhill Creek valley, through Brownhill Creek Recreation Park, SA. A narrow creek flows through the steep-sided valley, with majestic river red gums, some more than 300 years old.

The trail traverses the southern side of the valley, and the Shared Use Trail the northern side along the creek. It’s easily possible to combine the two trails in to a loop, starting at the caravan park and turning around at the Manure Pits.

Sites of interest on the hike include the Monarch of the Glen, a 400 year old river red gum. Its hollow trunk once sheltered Kaurna Aboriginal people and colonists until as late as the 1950s. Several settlers even gave birth inside the tree.
