Was told of "river torrens" by locals when 1st moved to Adelaide. So checked it out. By my classification, not a river, as dammed to hold water in...but that aside, a great escape from city noise; best running track in town, and on a bike a great way to connect beach with hills...with blackberries enroute in season

We did the walk around 6pm as the sun was going down and it was so picturesque! It's a beautiful walk and well worth doing.

This place is a perfect place if you want to spend less than one hour, as you can eat your food or drink something while you are viewing this beautiful place. It has a nice view of the river, and you can walk around or do running sport. The only issue of this place is the birds, as they come... More

This is - in my opinion - one of the prettiest and easiest walks in Adelaide - you can start anywhere but I generally get off the tram at North Terrace and walk down towards the Oval. Here there is a fantastic and cheap little cafe where you can have lunch overlooking the river. You can then walk past the... More

We walked along the river path during our short stop over in Adelaide. It was a lovely spot, used by dog walkers, cyclists and joggers but not at all busy on a Sunday afternoon. There were plenty of seats to stop and relax. We took a picnic and a bottle of wine. We saw pelicans and bats and lots of... More

Wonderful trail that you can enjoy solo or with the family. So many places you can stop for a picnic or just enjoy the beautiful scenery. Riding along here is bliss for me.

This bike and walking trail follows the Torrens river through the CBD all the way down to the beach. Its an easy ride ! When you get to the mouth of the Torrens...very small. Have a break and have a coffee at the Henley square which is near by.

I went there twice, once at night and the other time in the afternoon. Both of these times were great as the night scene was spectacular with the Oval lights and the Torrents being lighted up. However, the afternoon scenery is not to be missed too and I strongly suggest to go just before sunset. It's a beautiful place to... More
