This is the second in our local Backyard Blitz Series and it's beautiful relaxing day. 

Our path will follow the river Torrens from just near the Adelaide Oval towards Henley Beach, enjoying the beautiful river environs and rich history. We will stop along the way to allow for re-grouping, morning tea, lunch and so your AW guide can share the fascinating information about the area and landmarks. 

Leonie will explain the significance of the locations to the local Kayrna people's as well as talking about Adelaide's historic landmarks such as the Adelaide Oval, Old Goal & Torrens Weir on this picturesque walk, that is often described as an "oasis within the city".

Once we leave the city centre we will walk through the gorgeous River Red Gums lining the undulating pathway alongside the river and past reed beds and bulrushes. 
The river banks create natural sanctuaries that are filled with an abundance of bird life that slowly changes as we head towards the coast making for a very relaxing walk..

Bird species we may encounter include the beautiful white-winged fairy wrens, a range of duck species, lorikeets, bee-eaters, and honey eaters.

A fabulous getaway with a great crew of women. The history of the early pioneers coupled with some lovely walks and fantastic accommodation/food made this inaugural Heritage Walk really enjoyable. The storytelling made time in the pioneer cemetery and old church yard feel like you were seeing old family members. So glad I got to learn about Georgiana Molloy....she deserves a school being named after her.
