Circuit

Walk
45 min to 1 h

Starting from the Sten­house Bay Jet­ty car park off Pondalowie Bay Road, Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park, this walk takes you on a circuit around the headland above Stenhouse Bay via the Stenhouse Bay Lookout Walk. Located within Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park, Inneston was once a thriving self-sufficient gypsum mining town, first settled in the late 1880s and abandoned in the 1930s after the Great Depression. In 1913, the jetty was built at Stenhouse Bay to enable the shipping of gypsum, which was transported from Inneston by a horse-drawn tram until locomotives were introduced. Nowadays, a thriving artificial reef lies beneath the jetty, making an ideal site for diving and fishing. This short and easy walk winds around the headland above Stenhouse Bay, passing a series of lookouts that provide spectacular views of Investigator Strait and the Sten­house Bay Jet­ty, with interpretive signs detailing the mining history and vegetation of the area. The trail also passes an old rusted locomotive and wagons from the gypsum mining industry, as well as a seaman's grave from 1940. The walk begins near the Sten­house Bay Campground, which is suitable for tents, car­a­vans, camper vans and camper trailers and has toilets. This loop consists of wide, gently undulating walking trails, with compacted natural sur­faces, suitable for all 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 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.

Walk

20 min to 1 h

Starting from the end of the Granite Island Causeway, Granite Island Recreation Park, this walk takes you on a circuit around Granite Island via the Kaiki Walk. Granite Island is connected to the mainland at Victor Harbor by a newly built concrete causeway, serviced by a unique horse-drawn tram that began operating in 1894. ​The island is home to a colony of rare little penguins, and from May to October, pods of southern right whales can be spotted in the sheltered waters around the harbour. This family-friendly walk is a great way to discover the island, winding around its perimeter past several granite formations, with excellent coastal views and plenty of benches along the way. ​Interpretive signs along the trail provide an insight into the island's history, wildlife, geology and significance to the Ramindjeri Aboriginal people. ​This loop consists of gently sloping gravel trails, boardwalks and sealed paths, suitable for all ages and fitness levels. There is a long flight of steps in the island's eastern corner, which wheelchair users and parents with prams can avoid by taking the trail across the middle of the island. 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.
