Belair National Park has important natural, cultural, historical and recreational values and is the birthplace of the national park system in South Australia. The park was dedicated in 1891, making it the first national park in South Australia.

The park lies within the Mitcham and Adelaide Hills council areas, and forms part of a chain of national park reserves located along the Adelaide Hills Face Zone. The park is a part of our Southern Lofty District, which comprises 21 parks. It has become the gateway to other national park reserves in the state, as it is often the first port of call for many of the 250,000 local, interstate and overseas visitors who come here each year.

Belair National Park is just 13 km from the Adelaide City centre.

Belair National Park is open from 8 am to sunset all year round except Christmas Day.
