Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park


The Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park is a protected area located in the area of Flaxman Valley about 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) south-east of the town of Tanunda.

There are two walking trails within this park which pass through a variety of landscapes including creeks, rocky outcrops, areas of low forest, scrub and open grassland. The park has panoramic views across the ranges to the Barossa Valley.

The Wallowa Hike offers a comprehensive look at the park’s main features, including a scenic lookout and rock formations such as Horse Head Rock. Weathering and erosion have produced this rock formation which, as the name suggests, resembles a horse’s head. Capped Rock, a horizontal rock slab perched on a vertical outcrop, is another interesting feature and provides an exciting photographic challenge.

The Stringybark Loop provides a brief look at the park’s diverse flora and fauna.
