Starting from the Boatshed Café car park off Heron Way, Hallett Cove, this walk takes you on a circuit around Hallett Cove Conservation Park. Located in Adelaide's southern suburbs, Hallett Cove Conservation Park is a geological and archaeological site of international significance, containing evidence of an Australian ice age roughly 280 million years ago, as well as over 1,700 Abo­rig­i­nal artefacts. The glacial pavement at the top of Black Cliff, as well as the meltwater sediments, are recognised as the best record of Permian Age glaciation in Australia. This hike explores the unique environment along this section of Adelaide's coastline, with interpretative signage detailing the area's cultural and geological heritage. The hike initially follows a wheelchair-accessible bitu­men path to Black Cliff Look­out, then continues along a boardwalk before following a trail up into the cliffs, where walkers may spot the flowers of Christmas bushes and dryland tea trees. Towards the end, the hike winds around the geological formation known as the Sugarloaf, named for its resemblance to a mass of hard refined sugar. This loop consists of wide, gently undulating walking trails, with bitumen surfaces, compacted natural surfaces, boardwalks and steps, suitable for most fitness levels. 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 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 car park near the Glenthorne Ranger Sta­tion off Majors Road, Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta, this walk takes you on a circuit around Glenthorne Farm. Located in Adelaide's southern suburbs, O'Halloran Hill Recreation Park, now part of Glenthorne National Park-Ityamaiitpinna Yarta, consists mostly of grassy rolling hills with restored native vegetation that was formerly cleared for grazing. Walkers, mountain bikers, horse riders and dogs are welcome in the park, which offers a large open space with an extensive network of fire tracks and shared-use trails. This gentle, family-friendly walk trail meanders around Glenthorne Farm, with interpretive signage providing an insight into the park's history and future plans. The farm has a rich historical past, having been home to South Australia's first police commissioner, then later used by the Australian Army as a training ground for its mounted forces before becoming an experimental food research facility. Since 2001, Glenthorne Farm has been owned by the University of Adelaide and is mostly used as a sheep farm. It is being cared for by the Friends of Glenthorne Farm, who focus on restoring the native vegetation. This loop consists of gently undulating fire tracks, with compacted natural surfaces, suitable for most fitness levels.
