Netherby Spur and Harold's Lookout Circuit
2 h to 2 h 30 min
Starting near The Plant Accelerator at the end of Hartley Grove, Urrbrae, this walk takes you on a circuit within the Waite Conservation Reserve via Easement Track, Tanks Track, Yurrebilla Trail, Old Coach Road and Wild Dog's Glen Trail. The Waite Conservation Reserve protects an important remnant of original grassy woodland along the hilly backdrop to Adelaide, and is home to hundreds of species of native plants as well as kangaroos, koalas and echidnas. This scenic hike rewards walkers with fantastic city views, especially at Netherby Spur and Harold's Lookout. There is plenty of signage throughout, including informative boards detailing the areas history, vegetation and wildlife. There are also many benches along the way that make for peaceful resting spots. The walk starts with a mostly flat gradient along Easement Track, reaching a steep and slightly rocky ascent along Tanks Track and Yurrebilla Trail. Some of the paths can be quite narrow, with some steep and slippery 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.
