Mount Magnificent Conservation Park is a protected area in the Australian state of South Australia located in the Mount Lofty Ranges about 58 kilometres (36 mi) south of the state capital of Adelaide. It is located within the gazetted locality of Mount Magnificent.
The conservation park consists of 90 hectares (220 acres) of remnant bushland. The major feature of the conservation park is the 380 metres (1,250 ft) high Mount Magnificent. There is a walking track running east–west through the conservation 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 walk through the conservation park requires moderate levels of fitness with valleys and rises. The last part to the Mt Magnificent Summit is particularly steep. The conservation park is a good site to see Western Grey Kangaroos in a near native habitat.
