Living in Belair Located 10 kilometres south of Adelaide, Belair is known for the Belair National Park that has an area of 8.35 square kilometres. Established in 1891, the Belair National Park is the second oldest national park in Australia. It is also home to many reserves. It has a railway station that runs through Belair, which is the Adelaide-Wolseley railway line.
History of Belair Belair used to be the place used for seasonal gathering and hunting. The first European settler in the area was not a settler but a squatter, Nicholas Foott. He did not own any land but was only allowed by the government to improve and stay in the area. By 1840, a government farm was established, and Foott was removed as the tiller of the land.
Many of the occupants of Belair today should thank the previous occupants who petitioned to put a railway line on Belair for easy transportation. Even with the high demand for lands, the national government was unwilling to convert and subdivide the farm's land to meet the demand. Hence, the National Park Act included Belair National Park as one of its protected estates in 1891.
