Kinchina (Rocky Gully)

Kinchina Conservation Park forms the largest area of native vegetation in the Monarto Crown Lands region. The park is about 5km west of Murray Bridge and adjoins Monarto Zoo, Rocky Gully and White Hill. A 50 minute drive up the freeway will find you at the trailhead.



The Rocky Gully creek and lavendar federation trail pass through the park to the north, with beautiful granite outcrops forming features which can be enjoyed throughout the park. Signposted trails exist on both sides of Maurice Rd and for anyone enjoying epic adventures, your ride can be extended further utilising the callington spur trail. The area has approximately 30km’s of trail which are well sign posted and trailheads will help you to plan your ride. The trails are sand based and rocky with minimal elevation and lend their names from their surrounding vegetation as well as the prison nearby. They are hand-built and narrow but with good visibility and one of the best areas to ride in winter especially after some rain.
