Starting from the Boatshed Café car park at the end of Heron Way, Hallett Cove, this walk takes you on a circuit around Hallett Cove Conservation Park. This scenic family-friendly loop explores Hallett Cove Conservation Park, an area of geological and archaeological significance, protecting some of the earliest evidence of glaciation and Aboriginal settlement in Australia. The park also has a beach for swimming and fishing, as well as several lookouts with stunning coastal views and interpretive signs detailing the area's history, geology, sea life and Aboriginal and European heritage. The walk initially follows a bitumen path to Black Cliff Lookout, then heads along a boardwalk across Waterfall Creek, passing a side trip to the Shore Platform. Once the boardwalk ends, the walk turns inland and climbs towards Second Street, then follows a wide fire track past the Shepherd's Hut Ruins. After crossing the creek again, the walk continues towards Tornado Avenue, and then descends back to the car park. This loop consists of gently undulating bitumen paths, boardwalks and fire tracks, with many steps and some short steep hills, suitable for average fitness levels. The first section leading up to the lookout near Waterfall Creek is suitable for prams and wheelchairs, but beyond that is a series of steps. Dogs are not permitted in this park. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Starting from the Gate 1 car park on North East Road, Tea Tree Gully, this walk takes you on a circuit within Anstey Hill Recreation Park via the Quarry, Virgin Valley, Swoopy's, Silver Mine and DeVeg tracks. Enjoy a stroll along the Wednesday Loop, named after the day that the Friends of Anstey Hill Recreation Park commit to conserving the park through weeding, revegetating and monitoring flora and fauna. This walk provides great opportunities to observe western grey kangaroos and koalas in their natural habitat, as well as an abundance of birdlife. Remnants of European occupation are still visible in the park, including freestone quarries, a Dolomite quarry, an iron mine, and Newman's Nursery. The Wednesday Loop goes past an iron mine in the northeastern corner of the park. The Tea Tree Gully Iron Mine was opened in 1853 and produced small amounts of iron ore from the top of the hill until its closure in 1862. The track starts off wide and clear as it leads up the first hill, becoming narrower and slightly rocky as it undulates through open eucalypt woodland with a grassy understory. There is clear signage along the way, including detailed informative displays around the Tea Tree Gully Iron Mine. Be mindful that there are some uncovered mine shafts along the side of the trail. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
