A delightful walk back to the southern part of the city after dining in North Adelaide. Much better than walking along the road.

Great trail with lots of trees along the riverbank. Very suitable for some afternoon walk, or taking your bicycle out for some pedaling.

The river can get a little smelly when the wind blows the fountain water your way but the track is long and you can stop for a relax or picnic just about anywhere along the way on the grassy banks

Excellent trail, I started at the foothills and rode to the city. Relatively easy ride, lots of open space, playgrounds, ponds, etc. Beautiful spot to spend an afternoon. Next time I will go all the way to the ocean!

This trail, which runs from the foothills all the way to the ocean, really is amazing. I've been a few places in the world, and this trail is absolutely world class and dishes up a bit of everything along the way. I ride and run it often and it never, ever gets old. Different sections offer very different scenery, and... More

We walked from the Adelaide oval towards the zoo and up into the botanical gardens, a lovely relaxed walk with scenic river views, birds and wildlife. The area is also shaded a lot of the way. Later in the day we walked again from the Adelaide Oval in the opposite direction to the wier and onto the park the other... More

We spent several hours on a sunny day walking this path along the river before our tired feet said, "That's enough." So, not wanting to leave the pretty river area, we went for drinks and something to eat a riverside bistro and bar called the Regatta. We never had another opportunity to return for another walk, but I loved how... More

I jogged 8 miles around this park trail last night and was blown away!! Never have I felt such euphoric delight while enduring the hardships of a run! The place is spotless, with just the right amount of landscaping involved. The wildlife is rich and exotic (for a North American on a visit, any way: crazy beautiful birds all over... More
