Great to have this place close to home. Great fishing, canoeing, camping, even just going for a picnic. Good to see people using the walking trails.

Visited the Onkaparinga River National Park walk, we decided on blue trail as it started and finished at the car park. What a fantastic walk with beautiful views, great bird life and a couple of Kangaroos! A great way to spend a few hours and get some fresh air.

No directional signs along the walk so had to guess which way to go. No descriptive signs about the flora or fauna. Lots & lots of rubbish. No maintenance done on boardwalks. Really really disappointed and embarrassed at the state of these walks. The Onkaparinga Council need to lift their game and clean this place up as it has sooo... More

Due to impending rail construction we got terribly lost, which could have been averted with some signage to warn us. The birdlife on the river was good though.

Delightful at dawn, and also lovely in the evening. Did several visits to the area and went on two trails, lovely, some nice shots of the river and birdlife. some construction happening in the corridor due to the rail bridge, but that did not detract from the experience overall. JUst have to watch the angle of photos.
