Starting from the carpark on The Grove Way, near the Bridge Road intersection, Salisbury East, this walk takes you on a circuit via the Dam, Porosa, and Moto tracks. This walk follows some of the original farm tracks, and a tranquil path through the valley of Cobbler Creek among beautiful river red gums. Discover the ruins of one of the area’s first European farms, formerly belonging to William Pedler, a shoemaker whose trade gave rise to the name Cobbler Creek. The ruins of his farmhouse, Trevalsa, can still be seen on this hike. Teakles House is another stone ruin that you'll encounter along the way. From the hilltops you'll be rewarded with great views of the Adelaide Hills and surrounding plains. The route is a mixture of well-formed dirt roads, and narrower walking trails. There is good signage along the way, and interpretive displays at the ruins detail the area's history. There's a steep climb at the beginning of the Porosa Track, but the rest of the route has a gentle gradient. Dogs on leads are permitted in the park and Cobbler Creek. 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.

2 h to 3 h

Starting from the Trig Campground car park at the end of Tent Rock Road, this circuit walk takes you past Deep Creek Waterfall and Deep Creek Cove via the Heysen Track. It starts by descending to the beautiful Deep Creek Waterfall. Although the waterfall generally only flows in winter and after rains, the waterhole is permanent. The hike traverses the valley through forested gullies, reaching Tapanappa Lookout with stunning views over the area. From the lookout, the hike descends steeply to the secluded Deep Creek Cove, where Deep Creek meets the ocean. The walk ends with a steep ascent back to the Trig Campground car park, providing fantastic ocean views along the way. The diversity of ecosystems throughout this circuit hike make it all the more enjoyable. From the Xanthorrhoea hillsides, the grassy hilltops, the humid valley nooks, and the stands of tall eucalypts, the ecosystems offer a variety that contrasts the cleared farmland further inland. Some parts of the trail are slightly overgrown, and there are some steep uphill rocky sections that can be pretty challenging. 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 Trig Campground Carpark at the end of Tent Rock Road, Deep Creek, this walk leads to Deep Creek Cove and back via the Deep Creek Cove Hike. Situated on the southern coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula, not far from Cape Jervis, Deep Creek Conservation Park is famous for its spectacular coastline with rugged cliffs, protected coves and sweeping views of the Southern Ocean and Kangaroo Island. The trail starts from the picnic area and carpark at the far end of Trig Campground, leading to a secluded cove where Deep Creek meets the ocean. Enjoy stunning ocean views as you descend. The trail descends gradually, with a steep section at the end of the hike into the cove that requires some rock scrambling. Sturdy shoes are recommended, as there are some rough sections with loose rocks on the ground. There isn't much shade on the trail, so remember to bring sunscreen. There is good signage along the way, and facilities at Trig Campground include toilets and large picnic shelter. The campsites are spacious with plenty of trees to provide protection from the elements, and each campsite also has its own fire pit.

Starting from the Devil's Nose Track carpark on Para Wirra Drive, Para Wirra Conservation Park, this walk takes you on a circuit via the Devil's Nose, Quarry and Knob tracks. This hike extends the Devil's Nose Hike from a return 5.0km to a 10.5km circuit hike by including the Lizard Rock Nature Walk and the Hissey Walk. Descend towards the South Para River at the northern end of this hike, and glimpse views of the unique sandstone outcrop of Devil's Nose from below as you head towards the lookout. From the lookout atop Devil's Nose there are stunning views towards Gawler and the South Para River gorge. After enjoying the views, take the Quarry Track through a landscape dotted with old gold mining shafts and tunnels. Take care when walking in this area. The trail ascends gradually towards the small rounded hill of the Knob, where you'll find picnic tables nestled in peaceful surroundings. From the Knob, the trail goes past North Oval and along the Lizard Rock Nature Walk. This scenic walk takes you through stands of Pink Gum, Golden Wattle and Native Cranberry to a large granite outcrop known as Kadno or Lizard Rock, that provides views into the valley of Wild Dog Creek.

Starting from the roadside car park at Gate 12 on Piggott Range Road, Onkaparinga Hills, this walk takes you on a circuit via the Echidna Hike and Waterfall Spur Tracks. Onkaparinga River National Park protects some of the finest remaining pockets of remnant vegetation in the Southern Adelaide region. Areas of the park were used as farmland for many years, and you can discover heritage-listed huts and the ruins of houses built in the 1880s. Wherever you go, you’ll be among native wildlife such as birds, koalas, kangaroos and possums - you may even spot an echidna. The Echidna Hike takes you on a narrow trail over moderate slopes and through lovely pink gum, grey box and sheoak bushland. Enjoy the winter and spring floral displays, including stunning orchids. You will see the charming stone ruins of an old cottage, get great views of the gorge, and get a good workout. Along the way, a short side track leads to a small waterfall, that is especially picturesque after heavy rains. The trail is marked with large signs, making it easy to follow. The gradient is gentle, with some slightly rocky sections along the way.

Starting from the Boatshed Café car park on Heron Way, Hallett Cove, this walk leads to Brighton via the Coastal Walking Trail. Experience the unique environment along this section of Adelaide’s coastline, walking along the well-maintained boardwalk that winds its way over spectacular rugged cliffs. The scenery is stunning throughout, and there are access points to the variety of beaches along the coast. There are amazing views over the sea and the Adelaide coastline, and if you're lucky you may see dolphins and seals basking in the water. Interpretive signs along the way detail the area's unique geology and sea life. The trail mostly consists of boardwalk, steps and pathways. The numerous sets of stairs descending and ascending the steep gullies make for a decent workout, and require a moderate level of fitness. Water is available from several drinking water fountains, and there are also two toilets and two cafés along the way.

Hidden Gorge Circuit
16.9 km
Circuit

Walk
5 h, 8 h to 2 days

Starting from the car park at the end of Park Road, Wilmington, this walk takes you on a circuit within Mount Remarkable National Park via the Mambray Creek and Hidden Gorge tracks. The hike begins near the Mambray Creek Campground, winding through native pine forest lining Mambray Creek, past pools of permanent water. The trail passes the Hidden Gorge Campsite before entering the ever-narrowing Hidden Gorge, where you’ll walk between steep red-rock cliff walls. You can spend a night at this great spot next to the creek and make this a multi-day walk. Follow the track up to the Battery, and enjoy panoramic views over Spencer Gulf on one side and Mount Remarkable summit on the other side. Maps are available at the trailhead, and the path is well signed. Keep a lookout for small blue arrows along the way that are nailed onto rocks and trees. There are also metal poles at roughly 500m intervals that state the remaining distance on the hike. The parking area has plenty of space with public toilets and barbeques, making it perfect for a family trip. Although 17km may sound long, the first half of the trail is relatively flat aside from a few hops over the creek. The second half is a slow incline to the ridge, where it flattens out again along the top before hitting a steady decline back towards the car park. Sturdy walking shoes are recommended, and walking poles may be helpful for the numerous creek crossings along the way. 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.

8.6 km
Circuit

Walk
3 h 15 min to 4 h 30 min

Starting from the carpark at the end of Horsnells Gully Road, Horsnell Gully, this walk takes you on a circuit within the Horsnell Gully Conservation Park via the Main Valley, Mount Lofty, Yurrebilla and Rockdale Hill tracks. This hike is a hidden gem in the Adelaide Hills close to Adelaide, that takes you through forested valleys of majestic river red gums and South Australian blue gums. Keep an eye out for koalas in the treetops, and listen closely for sounds of southern brown bandicoots foraging in the undergrowth. The walk starts along the Main Valley/Waterfall Hike Track, leading uphill along a rough track that is often little more than a narrow, rocky creek-bed. Overgrown blackberry plants with thorns and occasional cobwebs make this quite a challenging section. The section at the end of Main Valley up on to the fire tracks on Rockdale Hill is very steep with some loose rocks, and involves climbing up a waterfall, which may be slippery after rain. The Rockdale Hill Track gradually descends back towards the car park, providing excellent views of the quarry and parts of the city of Adelaide along the way. This is quite a challenging walk, with a mixture of single track walking trails and fire tracks, steep ascents and some rocky sections. 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.

Mount Brown Summit Hike
13.1 km
Circuit

Walk
4 h 30 min to 6 h 30 min

Starting from the 'Gate 3' carpark at the end of Richman Valley Road, Quorn, this circuit walk takes you to the summit of Mount Brown via the Heysen Trail and the Mount Brown-Olive Grove Trail. On the walking trail signage, the starting point is referred to as the Olive Grove Trailhead. The circuit begins by following a fire track from the trailhead past Waukarie Falls, which is a very short walk off the trail. When the fire track meets the Heysen Trail, follow the Heysen Trail markers up a long ridge to the summit of Mt Brown. At the summit there is a lookout tower and interpretive signage. The lookout has been erected to honour naturalist Robert Brown, who with a party of others from Matthew Flinders' Investigator, climbed Mount Brown on 10 March 1802. From the lookout, walkers are rewarded with spectacular panoramic views over the surrounding area, including Richman Valley, The Dutchmans Stern, and Mount Remarkable. The hike returns down a long ridge back to the Olive Grove Trailhead. Along this trail there is geological evidence of a 1km deep canyon formed 600 million years ago. The circuit is very well signposted, with yellow distance markers and checkpoints with maps. All junctions are clearly marked, and there are usually printed walk brochures in the metal box at the trailhead. The track is quite easy for the first couple of kilometres through the valley, and then a relentless uphill trek begins. Sturdy shoes are recommended, as some sections of this hike involve scrambling over rocky surfaces, which may become slippery after rain. 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.

6.8 km
Circuit

Walk
2 h 15 min to 3 h 30 min

Starting from the end of Mount George Road, Mount George Conservation Park, this circuit walk takes you to the summit of Mount George and around the Stirling Golf Club. A popular destination for bushwalkers and birdwatchers, Mount George Conservation Park’s landscape ranges from wetlands to open forests, with rocky outcrops and superb views of the surrounding hills. The first section of this hike follows the Ridge Trail and Lewis Firetrack to the summit of Mount George. A nearby rocky outcrop has a magnificent lookout with views over Bridgewater to Mount Lofty. The dense stringybark forest was once typical of the hills here, and is a secluded preservation of native vegetation within an otherwise urbanised and cultivated area. The trail is well maintained and marked with pine posts and blue arrows, making it easy to follow. After the Mount George circuit is completed, the hike takes you around the Stirling Golf Club, regarded as one of the most picturesque golf courses in South Australia. A large section of this walk is along a road contouring the golf course, with no dedicated footpath. Overall, this hike has gentle gradients, clear signage and mostly well-formed tracks, being suitable for most ages and 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.
