Adelaide Parklands South

Sun 24 Oct 2021

Walk name/location
Adelaide Parklands South
Walk grade
Trail Starter
Description

The Adelaide Park Lands Trail is a series of connected walking and cycling trails that loop through or are adjacent to 27 parks and other historical locations within central Adelaide and North Adelaide. Using the River Torrens as a bisector allows the trail to be divided into a Southern Loop and a Northern Loop, which allows for more manageable walking distances over 2 days.

This walk will complete the Southern Loop of the trail (16km). The walk to complete the Northern Loop (9km) will take place on Sunday, 31st October 2021 (refer to the Walk Calendar to register separately for the Northern Loop event).

While city walking on a variety of flat bitumen, paved and unsealed paths will not appeal to everyone, these two events provide a great opportunity to walk a full loop of Adelaide while enjoying the park lands and other historical locations that make it such a unique city.

While this is not a difficult walk, it’s a long walk so wear appropriate clothing and footwear and carry sufficient water for the conditions on the day. Bring snacks / lunch to have at a couple of breaks along the way.
