Beaumont/Cleland via Botanic Gdns

Walk name/location
Beaumont/Cleland via Botanic Gdns
Walk grade
Trail Walker

This walk is ideal for walkers who need to get a few kms into their legs. It is about 26kms and includes a few hills and rough tracks to improve your stamina and walking techniques.

It takes in part of the Pioneers Womens Trail, Mt. Lofty Botanic Gardens and Cleland Recreation Park. The up hills are out of the way by lunchtime leaving a gentle stroll back to the cars after that.

We will probably make Cleland Wildlife Reserve in time for lunch and a coffee.

Points of Interest:

  • Pioneer Womens Trail – the ladies walked from Hahndorf to Adelaide 35kms carrying produce for sale and returning with thread, sugar, tea and bricks. They left Hahndorf at midnight and wash in stream near Beaumont at 4am before heading into the markets. From 1838 to 1850s.
  • Mount Lofty Botanic Gardens
  • Carminow – formerly “The Pinnacles” was built by Sir Thomas Elder in 1885, and became the summer home of Sir Langdon Bonython (owner of “The Advertiser”) from 1902 and renamed after an ancestral property in Cornwall. Restored after a fire by George Lucey.
