The coastal trail is a really well done 11 kilometer walk along some spectacular cliff tops south of Adelaide. Best approached from the car park in the Hallet Cove beach area it has some wonderful sign posted information spots along the path, designed to educate the walker about the history and fauna of the area it's a really lovely way...

Our grandson committed to raising some money by a gentleman who inspired him to do so and to help him build schools in Africa. So it was decided to do a walk from Hallett Cove to Brighton Jetty. after weeks of awful weather, the day looked perfect to tackle it. We set off at around 8 am expecting to take... More

What a wonderful walk!!! I had no idea what to expect. I'm of average fitness, not unfamiliar to long road walks but this was far more challenging and fun. Started at the end of Burnham Road in Marino and then followed it through to the end in Hallet Cove. There and back was about 11km. Expect a lot of steep... More

I have hiked this trail many a time in the past year. It is well-maintained and the scenery is awesome. It is not for the faint-hearted, the many many steps are a real killer on the legs, but you can do just part of the trail and there are rest stops along the way. You can also amble along at... More

The broad walk at Hallett Cove is a fantastic walk but can be a bit of a workout for those not regular walkers. The broad walk is nice and safe, with plenty of rest stops. The view is spectacular especially on mild nights at sunset.

The walk from kingston park to hallet cove is just over 5kms and if you take side tracks and walk to the end of hallect cove beach it is 7km. Allow 1.5 hours each way at a reasonable pace. There are a number of stairs that go across the gullies and these are quite steep and will get you puffing.... More

This trail is one of my favourites in Adelaide. It has the most fantastic ocean views and the contrast between the red earth rocks and the ocean is just stunning. The steps are well maintained and there are a series of exit points to go down and walk among the rocks (or bail out if your legs get too sore).... More

This walk along the coast is great and if you are lucky you get to see dolphins and seals. The walk has some steps so a reasonable level of fitness is suggested.

Wear good walking or hiking shoes, sunblock, a hat and take a water container with you. You can do this walk at your own pace, gallop or amble, it's entirely up to you. You will be rewarded with spectacular views of the coast and the ocean, with lovely sea breezes and the sound of the waves. The walk is not... More

Great boardwalk starting at the Marino Rocks car park. Set a fast pace and you are gauranteed a great workout. A large number of step steps both there and back make for an awesome leg session.
