Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / South Australia / Greater Adelaide / Adelaide Hills / Mount Barker / Totness Recreation Park
Totness Recreation Park (formerly Totness National Parks Reserve) is a protected area in the Australian state of South Australia located within the localities of Mount Barker and Totness in the central Mount Lofty Ranges. Covering 41 hectares (101 acres) of land, the park is divided by the South Eastern Freeway and features a large dam. It was declared as a reserve in 1970 and re-designated as a recreation park in 1972. The park has no visitor facilities except for access tracks. It is the only park in the district, managed by the Department of Environment and Water, that is solely designated for recreation.Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Mount Barker fast, fun, and easy.
While parts of the park are dominated by pest plant species, primarily gorse and blackberry, it has native plant communities that are of conservation significance. messmate stringybark and manna gum woodlands are of particular note, being now uncommon in much of their former range across the Mount Lofty Ranges.

Totness Recreation Park reviews
Pretty little park, hidden away but so close to Mt Barker and Littlehampton. Has a decent size lake where kids swim on a hot day, (though signs do say no swimming). Dog friendly too. We'll worth a look.
Another one of my favourite spots to relax in My Barker. Quiet and calming.
A great swimming spot
Hard and steep but very nice
Shhh don’t tell people about this place! Gorgeous.
