  • I took the 13 km walk along the River Torrens from Henley Beach South into Adelaide. It begins with the sea views at the river mouth where pelican statues overlook the area from tall wooden posts...

  • Exciting to see the progress with the breakout creek redevelopment. Sienna
  • Fantastic shared use trail that goes from the Adelaide Hills to the Beach, passing through the city along its way. Great place to ride, walk and enjoy the outdoors. Plenty of picnic facilities and larger parks along its length.
  • Very good trail for walking. Starting from the sea anf walking along the river. The river is very narrow though. Kids friendly. I really some tables for having short meal. Horses increased the pleasure 😊
  • Can't beat a beautiful ride along the linear trail! When the water is flowing, it's so pretty and refreshing. The only point of criticism I would note is that dogs are often loose and have come off my bike due to a dog running out in front of me. The trail itself is very peaceful and picturesque. Love the sounds of all the different birds whilst walking or riding this trail. I often ride along this path all the way from Henley Beach to the start of the hills near Gorge Rd. Sometimes the path can be extremely busy with pedestrians, dogs, families and cyclists which is great to see. There are multiple spots for BBQ options & few water stations along the path. There are playgrounds and fitness parks along the way too.
  • River Torrens linear park trail ends at Torrens River outlet which is between Henley Beach and West Beach. It is a very popular trail used by walkers, runners and cyclists. Everyone can enjoy the trail. The trail is generally flat. It's also convenient to park at Ozone Reserve near the Torrens River outlet.
