    I would not say this is a easy walk but it is achievable to most and the scenery is great. Does have many stops along the way if you need to take a break and the surface is very good.

    This Park was recommended by our Adelaide taxi driver. I am so glad that we decided to visit once we picked up our rental car since it was located outside of the main city center. We spent about 3 hours here but you can definitely spend more time. I suggest you contact them and schedule your visit around the keeper presentations, animal feeding times and, if interested, the Koala hold. There are lots of animals that you can see close up and even feed. The kangaroos are very gentle and love to eat from your hand. If you don’t have a car, I would definitely recommend that you contact a tour operator, especially if you have children. We joined a tour in Melbourne and went to several cities in Australia and there were really no opportunities to feed a kangaroo the entire time, especially on Clelands vast scale, so I was thrilled to have had this opportunity.

    I wasn't going to review Black Hill as a hiking trail because I thought it would be good for it to stay a well kept secret - but heck that's mean! Currently training for a hike in Corsica and Sardinia and Black Hill is just perfect - there is a 6 hour/17kms round hike you can do with a couple of really mean hills thrown in. If you include Ghost Gully, Orchard Track and walk along Montacute road for about 1-1/2 kms you can join up with the mean mother Quarry track and head back down from the summit via Summit Nature trail back to where you started from. And it is lovely pristine bush when you stop for a breather!

    Nice bird watching area on the edge of the Adelaide CBD that’s worth a look if your a birder. Worth a look

    The work that the council has done in this area has made it a very nice part of the linear park. The plants are really nice and there are places to sit and relax. It is a great improvement to the torrens.

    Keep an eye on road signage and get along to the Fair. There is yummy and cheap home made food. There are stalls and cheap things galore to be found. It's a great morning out for the whole family.

    Great little tour along the Torrens with an expert friendly guide.

    When your not blessing out bird viewing, enjoy the beautiful Torrens scenery.

    This reserve lies at the south end of Carrick Hill Drive, south of the city. As the name suggests, it was once a quarry, but much of it is now a level grassed area. There is an ample carpark, and from here a view out over the plains to the city. On the other side is a steep cliff with signboards describing the various geological formations. At the far end is an unlocked gate with ‘Danger’ signs! We have been in here many times previously with our children, before the Council sanitised it with fences and made it boring! There are steep cliff faces and wonderful places to explore, and all perfectly safe with a little common sense. From here is is possible to follow tracks up to the Brownhill summit, and down to the Brownhill Creek. All well worth doing, and an interesting outing.
