Short walk in Nixon-Skinner Conservation Park

About the Walking Route

Enjoy a walk through Nixon-Skinner Conservation Park to see spring wildflowers and see views over Myponga Reservoir.

The park is an island of native vegetation in a picturesque setting, framed by the Myponga Rservoir and pine plantations.

This walk is not in the formal Myponga Reservoir reserve managed by SA Water, but is in the adjacent conservation park managed by National Parks and Wildlife Service South Australia. The park overlooks Myponga Reservoir.

Access the walk from Gate 1; driving south from Myponga, the gate is on your right 4.0km south of of the town centre. The walk follows an old road out to the reservoir, and ends at Gate 26, where the road becomes submerged into the reservoir.

The park was the first privately donated reserve to be established in South Australia. The park was donated by Lucy Eleanor Page, a long standing and active member of the Field Naturalists Society of SA who lived in this locality. The park is named in honour of her grandfathers.
