Easy track
Starting from the Elder Park Rotunda on King William Road, Adelaide, this walk takes you on a circuit along River Torrens via the Torrens Linear Park Trail. Equipped with regular picnic areas, playgrounds and toilets, it is suitable for everyone and is wheelchair accessible. If you need a rest, stop at some of the many of Adelaide’s great attractions you’ll see on the way, find a nearby café, or soak in the nature in the middle of the city. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
