Kuitpo: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Kuitpo Forest


Kuitpo Forest is situated in the South Mount Lofty Ranges, 45 minutes drive from Adelaide, near the township of Meadows.

Established in 1898, Kuitpo was the first of a number of forest plantations in the Mount Lofty Ranges to ensure a sustainable timber resource for South Australia.

Today, Kuitpo Forest Reserve covers an area of some 3,600 hectares, of which 60 percent is softwood plantation. Kuitpo's plantations yield some 25,000 cubic metres of timber each year, valued in excess of AUD1.5 million.

Kuitpo is modelled as a community forest, managed for sustainable commercial forestry, while providing for the conservation of native flora and fauna and community use for recreation.

Gemtree Wetlands Ecotrail


The Gemtree Wetlands Ecotrail is a 10 hectare area in the heart of the Gemtree Vineyards, which is a major haven for native plants, frogs, birds and animals.

The Ecotrail comprises a one kilometre walk with 10 information markers along the way. The trail starts at the carpark where you can view an interpretive map. Brochures are provided to help guide your walk around the trail and inform you about various places of interest.

Picnic shelters and a public barbecue are provided for your enjoyment. There are information boards to learn from, a bike rack and a few bench seats along the way to stop and relax and take in the views of the McLaren Vale vineyards and the surrounding beauty of the wetlands.

The Gemtree Wetlands Ecotrail is a fine example of how degraded farmland can be restored back to its original condition prior to being settled by farmers.

Bring the family to enjoy this peaceful wonderland.

All come softly
Do not scare
A friend away.
