Cobbler Creek – Porosa plus

Thu 18 Mar 2021

6:00pm - 7:45pm

Walk name/location
Cobbler Creek – Porosa plus
Walk grade
Summer Walks

A good walk to blow away the summer cobwebs – not too long, but challenging in parts.

Well worth the visit, as Cobbler Creek contains the largest remaining stand of the endangered mallee box grassy woodland on the Adelaide plains, making it an important conservation area.

From the meeting place, we have a pleasant walk along the footpath adjacent to the Golden Grove Park and a quiet residential street before entering Cobbler Creek Recreation Park. Initially we will follow a comfortable walking trail before we take a sharp descent on a rugged trail to meet the Porosa Trail next to Cobbler Creek.

We continue along the creek on a narrow track, through bushland – the gums here are up to 150 years old.  The track heads west, initially overlooking the creek. Further on we will have evening views over the Salisbury plain, Torrens Island and Barker Inlet.

After the Porosa turns east, we have a short climb to Teakles Ruin. A bit further on is the view over Greenwith and the Mt Lofty Ranges (see the image above).

From there we depart the Porosa to take the Valley Circuit on our way back to the car park.
