To get to the Para Wirra Conservation Park from Adelaide follow the Main North Road north and beyond the Parafield Airport and then just before Elizabeth look for the sign to One Tree Hill on the right side of the road after the Old Spot Hotel which also has the brown and white sign to the Para Wirra Conservation Park.

Drive through One Tree Hill and to the ‘T’ intersection at the bottom of the hill and turn left (northeast) again following the signs to the Park.

Almost straight away there is a four road intersection with a large roundabout and you drive straight ahead (around the roundabout of course) again following the signs to the Park and not to Gawler or Kersbrook. You are now on Humbug Scrub Road.

Follow it to the main gate of the Park and then follow the Orienteering signs.
