Definitely a highlight of Adelaide. I wish all capital cities in Australia had been so forward thinking and designed such a beautiful central path for everyone to enjoy. Ran from the city to Henley and then kept going on another path to Glenelg. It was very well maintained and the signage was very helpful. Could use a few more drinking... More

Love this walk way have spent a lot of time over the years walking this trail too and from the Adelaide caravan park. An enjoyable walk between places like the botanic gardens,the Adelaide zoo and the centre of Adelaide town. Week kept and plenty of wild life along its breath. My favourite walk in Adelaide.

Great place to walk, run, ride or just feed the ducks. Amazing scenery, trees, etc, ducks, birds, and the city so close.

There aren't many capital cities in the world where you can walk, run, ride all the way from the hills to the beach. It's a full day's walk (I'd advise a car shuffle so you only have to go one way. Start at the top and end at the beach for dinner and a well deserved drink! Hire a free... More

Last weekend we finally completed the last 5 km of the walk, having had to interupt it with a hip operation. At each stage we had good parking & were able to complete an approximate 5km on one side of the river, returning on the other side. Good for relaxing, good for fitness & great to see the marvellous scenery... More

If you're visiting Adelaide and you're a runner, this is a good place to head. Assuming you're staying in the CBD you can easily find the River Torrens and from there head in either direction for a run anywhere from a couple of kilometers to 30 or more. For example, you could start your run on the Linear Park in... More

Walking along linear park is very relaxing, however walkers share with cyclists. Most cyclists are polite and use their bell to worn you but there is the odd who springs up behind you.

Depending on which section of path you take, the River Torrens Linear Park Trail, is a beautiful peaceful walking path. My advice is to avoid the section that is close to the bus path which is from the city heading east until Darley road. The path is accommodating for walkers, strollers, cyclists and dogs. Just remember to bring some plastic... More

This park trail separates the Adelaide city centre and North Adelaide. Do come by and enjoy a nice, relaxing walk by the riverside. For tourists like me, the park trail is quite near other Adelaide attractions as well – the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, Adelaide Zoo etc., so you can visit the trail on the way or when coming back from...

the linear trail park is quite long but you can plan a short walk or an all day walk if you want, there are plenty of BBQ areas all along the Torrens river, the longer you follow the trail, it eventually leads to the beach from the city or you can go all the way to the Gorge historic bridge...
