BIKE & WALK
Coast Park Path along Adelaide’s Beaches
This Coastal Walk is a collaborative effort between 6 local councils to create a 70km walking and cycling path along the Adelaide coastline that is continuous, from North Haven to Sellicks Beach. The path has most of the sections developed for both walkers and cyclists (still under development in some areas). It is shared access and you can walk or cycle and it is accessible for wheelchairs and prams.
One of the wonders of Adelaide is being able to take a coastal walk of this distance and enjoy a dip in the ocean in summer as you go, or a coffee at a café if its winter!

River Torrens Linear Park
This walk starts from the Adelaide Zoo or the Adelaide Festival Centre and follows the River Torrens for 12 kilometres to West Beach river mouth. It loops around so that you walk on both sides of the river.
It has good paths and easy access for walker, cyclists and wheelchairs. There are picnic stops and playgrounds along the way and it is a very picturesque and flat terrain to walk along. Much of the trail is bitumen and some gravel.
Tennyson Dunes Native Plant Trail
The Tennyson Dunes are one of the last remaining remnants of a tertiary dune system on the metropolitan coast as such they are significant locally and regionally. They contain some 56 native plant species and host a variety of wildlife. Their protection and preservation is important to the City of Charles Sturt.
The concept of the Tennyson Dunes Native Plants Trail was first developed by Greecorp in 2004. The concept being to showcase native plants in their natural environment.
The 2km trail meanders through the Tennyson Dunes and is punctuated by bollards that detail the name of the plant and show a small etching of an identifiable feature on the plant.
