Favourite Photos – Anstey Hill Recreation Park

Anstey Hill Recreation Park is a favourite amongst walkers in the North-Eastern suburbs of Adelaide, South Australia.Β  I’ve done 7 out of the 11 walks and love going up there to get away from it all, take photos and to challenge myself with the hills. There is plenty of wildlife and the scenery changes with the seasons. Here are a collection of some of my favourite photos.

It pays to stop and look down to the side of the trail – these guys are quite small but were beautiful with the water droplets on them

Grass trees – feels like you are in the Flinders Ranges

Can’t help but love these guys – koalas are common in the park
