Approximately 38 kilometres north-east of Adelaide and about 4 kilometres north of Birdwood on Cromer Road.
About the park:
Cromer Conservation Park is one of the few woodland parks in the higher rainfall part of the Mount Lofty Ranges. This small space conserves habitat types that are now rare. Most of this once-fertile flat land has been cleared for agriculture. This little park contains fragments of once widespread vegetation types, such as the South Australian blue gum, pink gum, long-leaf box and river red gum grassy woodlands.
At 45 hectares, Cromer is small and threatened by edge effects, weeds, plant pathogens like Phytophthora, drying due to over-extraction of water in local catchments and over-abundant kangaroo grazing.
Cromer has not been spared from the decline of many woodland bird species in the Mount Lofty Ranges. Species like the Black-chinned Honeyeater, Diamond Firetail and Restless Flycatcher no longer occur.
We encourage you to become a member of the URTLG to participate in the activities at Cromer Conservation Park.
