History of the Adelaide100® trail
The Adelaide100® has been developed over the past decade.
In the mid 1800s following the founding of Adelaide, a unique system for categorising land parcels was established. This was based upon land sizes of approximately 100 square miles called a “hundred”. One of these was the “Hundred of Adelaide” upon which the city of Adelaide was established. The Adelaide100® circuit largely replicates the perimeter of the “Hundred of Adelaide”.
Discover how the trail visionary, Jim McLean, first saw the potential of a multi-day walking trail that enveloped the city.
