MAKE A BOOKING

Grab your walking shoes girls and join Leonie on a "mystery" hike in the beautiful Cobbler Creek Recreation Park exploring a number of trails that take you through peaceful River Red Gum lined creeks, woodlands echoing with bird calls, and over ridges with views across the Adelaide plains; all the while learning a little about the interesting history of the area.

The park is located just 19 km from Adelaide CBD and is filled with a large range of flora and fauna including the last remaining mallee box grassy woodland in Adelaide and bird species such as black-shouldered kites, nankeen kestrels, red-rumped parrots, crested pigeons and lorikeets.

This 5km, 4/10 (easy-moderate walk ) will suit those looking to explore a new area in your own backyard as well as anyone with some fitness just getting into (or back into) walking.

Bring along a snack or light lunch to enjoy along the way and perhaps join Leonie for a coffee or more and a chat back in the village of Golden Grove after the walk.

 

Start/End: Golden Grove Caltex Woolworths - plenty of parking in the nearby shopping centre

Distance: 5 km Loop Walk

Style of Walk:   Beginners. Mixed environment.  Slow paced with regular stops along the way. Picturesque.

Another great AW excursion around our beautiful city and banks of the Swan River, well-led by the dynamic duo Jazzy and Sue O. Saw lots of interesting features and enjoyed the company of friendly co-walkers. 19km sounds long but was definitely doable.

We enjoyed an easy hike on Mt Coot-tha's new Spotted Gum 2.4km track on the way down with more of an uphill challenge on the way back up to the Summit. The group of like minded women was really friendly made for a pleasant outing. Chris is a really nice host.
