We hired free bicycles from The Hub in Adelaide city centre, which came with helmets, locks and a front basket. We managed to access the River Torrens Linear Trail without riding on any roads, by crossing north over the river on the new pedestrian bridge behind the casino. We headed east, although you can reach the beach if you turn... More

This is a magical area. The linear park goes for miles. Grab a free bike and ride along it's length. A wonderful day out in the sun.

The River Torrens Linear Park Trail has always been an excellent way to relax with family & friends. It is free of charge & is always a little different depending on the weather & season.

While the well-formed trail winds from the edge of the eastern suburbs, through the city, and all the way to the sea, it also branches off onto a myriad of other trails which are well suited to bicycles and pedestrians alike. The almost total lack of road crossings is a tribute to the design team! Along the way there is... More

After sitting in conference lectures all day, it was great to get out on a balmy autumn day. I followed the trail from the conference centre back to Bonython Park (lovely for kids and families) and then crossed to the other side and walked back past the Adelaide Oval, the University footbridge and some wonderful rose gardens, before crossing back...

Nice places to rest, picnic or bbq. some toilets & water stops. Like most travellers I wanted to get to the beach as fast as possible. not a great bike rider, I found... More

I often ride or walk on the Linear Park Trail and most of it is great but there are areas that can be improved with some extra maintenance. I also like to see a few places where I you could stop for a coffee or two.

I went down here on a Sunday morning and it was a beautiful day for a run in the park. Here you can also rent pedal boats, take a Popeye Tour of the River Torrens, or see the various rowing clubs practicing in the river.

We were staying with family in Athelstone just across the road from the Linear Park Trail which basically follows the Torrens River from the gorge down to the sea. We walked the top part of the trail up to the gorge. I must admit I was very impressed with what the local council has achieved ... wide concrete paths in... More
