Secret Walks in Adelaide

Adelaide is surrounded by an incredible natural landscape. From rugged coastal cliffs to serene flowing rivers and tumbling gorges, there are walks in Adelaide to suit every explorer, no matter your fitness level. We've picked out some of the locals' favourites.

Newman's Nursery Walk
If you're a bit of a history buff, Anstey’s Hill will be your cup of tea. Newman’s Nursey loop can be done as a short 2km stroll or the full 7.5km trail. Walk the full loop to see to see ruins of the old nursery, scenery and you might catch a glimpse of a few animals along the way.

 

Bluff Summit Walk
While only a short 850m, this walk is more like a climb, so isn't the easiest one on the list. It does however, grant you an incredible 360 degree view of Victor Harbour. The summit is a local favourite for Instagram snaps, so be sure to take your photography skills and camera along with you.

Port Noarlunga South to Moana Walk
Catch some of the best views over the Gulf of St Vincent, while walking this 4km section of the Coastal Park Trail. The walk takes you along the beach where you can stop in for a quick dip, or pack a picnic and settle in at one of the reserves where kids can have fun in the playground.

Onkaparinga Gorge Loop
Follow this loop to Sundews lookout, where views of the Onkaparinga Gorge await. The walk is around 5km and will take around two hours. The Gorge is located about 30 km's out of Adelaide city so is a great day trip option.

Travel Secret: Extend the Gorge loop with the Sundews River Hike, where you'll descend into the river gorge on a 4.5km return loop.

 

Pioneer Women's Walk
This is a long one. At 22km, (6-7 hours) this is one for the committed walker. Small paths lead you through Hahndorf and the Adelaide Hills, honouring the European settlers who once walked this trail. The wildlife and native flora along this trail is a treat as you make your way through.
