Mount Magnificent Conservation Park is a small conservation park located on the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia, 58 km south of Adelaide. The park comprises 90 ha of remnant bushland. The major feature of the park is the 380m high Mount Magnificent.[1] There is a walking track running east - west through the park, as well as an easy trail to the top of Mount Magnificent. All of this track is part of the Heysen Trail and links Finniss Conservation Park to the east, and Kyeema Conservation Park to the northwest. The park is a good site to see Western Grey Kangaroos in a near native habitat.[2]
