Just three kilometres from Adelaide CBD and a stone’s throw from the River Torrens, the St Peters Billabong is a local treasure which is home to a thriving ecosystem— and a popular place for families and friends to spend time with nature.

The Billabong and its surrounding natural landscape have been carefully nurtured over many years by a group of professional and passionate volunteers.


The Billabong is located in St Peters Park, adjacent to Linear Park.

Enter from Goss Court (off Harrow Road) or from River Street, adjacent to Tenth Avenue.

The aim of the Friends of the Billabong (FOB) is to restore native habitat, increase biodiversity and improve the quality of water flowing into the River Torrens.

FOB volunteers participate in regular working bees and are mainly involved in natural re-vegetation work and offer practical, hands-on assistance including planting, weed eradication, watering and general site improvement according to the agreed management plan.

Working bees are held at the St Peters Billabong twice a month on the first Saturday and the third Sunday of the month.
