Walking

With hundreds of walking trails in South Australia, there’s little wonder that walking is such a popular activity. Whether you’re looking for fun and excitement, or a new challenge, walking is sure to please. It’s also a great way to learn about the environment and a good way to spend time with family and friend. And it’s an ideal form of exercise.

If you’re planning a visit to South Australia, walking is one of the best ways to explore the State and to experience our native wildlife, birdlife and flora. Many of the State’s walking trails are in national parks and regional areas, passing vineyards, historic towns and areas of stunning natural beauty.

Whether it’s a relaxed one-hour stroll or a five-day trekking adventure, South Australia has a trail for you. There’s the 1,500 kilometre Heysen Trail, named after famous artist, Sir Hans Heysen, the River Torrens Linear Park, that runs through the city itself, and the Mount Lofty Walks – just 20 minutes drive from the Adelaide CBD. There are walks in national and conservation parks, heritage walks, forest walks and coastal walks – definitely something for everyone.
