Dorset Vale

Scott Creek Conservation Park

Scott Creek is a significant conservation area and home to many threatened species of the Mount Lofty Ranges.

The park is an important link in the vegetation corridors of the hills and was once part of a major travelling route for the Peramangk Peoples.

From the 1850s, the area was mined for both copper and silver. By the time production stopped in 1887 due to economic reasons, the mine had produced 310 kilograms of silver.

Discover remnants of the mine ruins including an engine house, stone chimney, the mine office, a dairy and several mining shafts along the park's interpretive walking trails. Please note that Eys Tunnel is now closed due to the risk to public safety
