Second Valley Forest is located on Kaurna and Ngarrindjeri Country, on the Fleurieu Peninsula.

Consisting of about 2,000ha of pine plantations and more than 250 ha of Native Forest Reserves and conservation zones containing ecologically important Fleurieu swamps, it provides sustainable softwood production and protects critical habitat for native flora and fauna.

The forest is also home to the spectacular Ingalalla Falls. More than 70,000 people visit each year to picnic, enjoy our walking trails and explore the natural creeks, rockpools and breathtaking waterfalls.

Second Valley Forest also contains Jones Journey and the Wilampa Trail. These two 7-8km shared-use loop trails cater for horse riders, walkers, trail runners and bike riders. Dogs are also welcome on a lead.

ForestrySA manages 10,000ha of plantation forest in the Mount Lofty Ranges. As leaders in responsible plantation management for 150 years, all trees are replanted following harvest, allowing for sustainable timber production well into the future. In addition, ForestrySA manages over 4,000 ha of Native Forest reserves protected for conservation and biodiversity. There is plenty to see and do, with more than 1,000,000 people visiting each year for activities such as camping and accommodation, bushwalking, hiking, running, bike riding, horse riding, fossicking, orienteering and rogaining, wedding ceremonies and so much more.
