Friends of
Shepherds Hill Recreation Park
South Australia

We acknowledge the Kaurna First Nation, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we live, meet and work. We wish to pay respect to Elders - past, present and emerging - and acknowledge the important role all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within Australia and the community.


About Us

23 years and counting

Established in 1999, the Friends of Shepherds Hill Recreation Park is a group of dedicated volunteers seeking to advance the environmental rehabilitation of the Park, particularly its Grey Box (E. microcarpa) grassy woodlands (a vulnerable ecosystem). The area of Shepherds Hill is and has always been a predominantly grassy woodland.

Over recent decades the incursion of weeds, particularly olive, boneseed, phalaris and ash have significantly impacted the local environment.

The work of the Friends of Shepherds Hill Recreation Park is gradually but significantly restoring the balance.

We appreciate the support of the Department of Environment & Water and the Friends of Parks SA.

Flora - hidden in plain sight

Grow to love our indigenous plants! Some may not be large and showy, but they are beautiful in their own right.
