Starting from the main roundabout on the Copper Coast Highway, Kadina, this walk takes you to Wallaroo via the Copper Coast Rail Trail. Following the original rail corridor of the former railway line, the Copper Coast Rail Trail connects the inland town of Kadina with the coastal town of Wallaroo, providing contrasting scenery ranging from dryland interior to picturesque beaches. The area is rich in mining and agricultural history, with museums and historic buildings, and both towns have several shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants. The trail features a bitumen surface, with shelters and interpretive signage detailing the area's history along the way. Shortly after leaving Kadina, the trail passes the Wallaroo Mines Institute, built in 1902. Further ahead, the trail passes the old stone racecourse stand, built in 1899, then continues through open country to the outskirts of Wallaroo. The trail ends at the Wallaroo beachfront, providing great views of the Yorke Peninsula's pristine waters, as well as excellent swimming and fishing opportunities at the beaches and the jetty. This walk consists of mostly flat sealed paths, with some road crossings, suitable for all fitness levels and bike types, as well as prams and wheelchairs. 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.
