This trail follows the Torrens River for several kilometres through the centre of Adelaide. The walk is tranquil and picturesque with many birds to be seen. Take care with the cyclists who share the trail and can travel at high speeds.

We took the free City Connector bus service to the Adelaide Zoo stop and tracelled down the ramp to the Linear Park running alongside the River Torrens. A peacefull Sunday morning stroll watching the wildlife - ducks and ducklings, black swans and their cygnets and even a pair of pelicans. Ended up at the Pavilion bar for a pre-lunch ale.... More

Very friendly ducks accompanying us as we sat on the grass. Lie down and watch the clouds float by. Plenty of shade when the sun is too hot. Quiet and peaceful even though it was late Sunday morning. Very pleasant walk. Great view, gentle hills. Didn't encounter any cyclists, which seem to have bothered some others, perhaps we were lucky... More

We have done two rides along this fabulous linear bike trail - one from the city out to West beach (about 16 kms return) and the other starting where the Lower North East road crosses the Torrens at Paradise (also about 16 kms return). Both rides are on well made and kept sealed paths in parklands. The ride from the... More

The River Torrens Linear Park Trail follows the River torrens from Henley Beach to the foothills. You can cycle or walk this trail and it passes right through the heart of Adelaide.

I just love the Torrens Linear Park: it is such a beautiful path along the river! It is the most convenient way to cycle straight into the center of the city (or to the beach, depending on which way you travel), without any traffic lights or dangerous crossings.

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.

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
