Description

Intro:
North of Adelaide in the Kaiserstuhl Forestry Reserve, West of the Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park.

Access issues

Note:
This area is closed on days of extreme fire danger. Do not drive your vehicle into the Native Forest Reserve if gate is unlocked. Park outside the gate, ensuring the road and gate are not blocked to Forestry SA traffic. Overnight camping and campfires are not permitted at any time. The Reserve is open from sunrise to sunset every day. Do not feed the wildlife and stick to marked trails as much as is possible. Scrub off all tick marks before leaving and pack out all rubbish.

Approach

General Location:
You can park your car in two places, the east carpark - small dirt road on corner of Brownes Rd and Heggies Rd, and the south carpark - on Brownes Rd. Park off to the side of the road and dont obstruct the gates. There is also access from the North via the conservation area, however rock climbing and bike riding is banned in this area, so entering from here should only be done on foot and not carting pads in. Beware of Google maps suggesting shorter alternatives.

Where to stay

In Tanunda and Eden Valley there is a caravan park you can use if you are staying for a while. There is also a small Heysen trail hut (Rossiters Hut) in the Enchanted Forest West of Emerald City that can sleep up to 6 on wooden bunks, with walk in access only.
