by Jim McLean As a kid on Sunday School Picnics in the Belair National Park, I was dubbed “Mountain Goat” for the ease with which I scaled steep slopes to explore the holes in the rock which we called “caves”. It was then that I fell in love with the Adelaide Hills. It was the […]
Have you spotted any Adelaide100 posts while out walking? 25% of the trail has now been installed with the recent completion of the 11km through the City of Holdfast Bay, including the marina and lock at the Patawalonga, spectacular coastal views, and the Tjilbruke Monument. Thank you to all the Holdfast Bay staff who helped with the installation of this section!
Walking SA is currently engaged in negotiating with fourteen property stakeholders along the 100 plus km route of the new walking trail the Adelaide100. Local government of the north eastern suburbs immediately recognised the worth of the project. The Campbelltown City Council, the City of Tea Tree Gully and the City of Port Adelaide Enfield quickly committed support and resources to the portions of the trail traversing their regions.
We’ve started working through Stage 2 of bringing the Adelaide100® trail to reality. Stage 2 is focussed on the advanced planning of some of the more complex trail connections, which will then be work-shopped with key stakeholders to seek necessary approvals, support and ongoing co-operation.

We’ve installed our first post on the Adelaide100 trail. The first post was installed in the Adelaide Hills, directing walkers along Monument Road between Norton Summit and Debneys Road.
For the most part the trail will link up existing trails to form a circuit. Much of the route can be walked, albeit without the trail being marked as such, and without detailed local maps. Please respect land owners and keep to existing trails, paths and roads. As the project progresses, further detailed maps will be developed, and the trail marked.
Walking SA has recently met with key staff in the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) regarding taking the Adelaide100 walking trail concept to a reality.
Walking SA continues to develop the unique Adelaide100 walking trail. We are currently finalising a budget to implement Stage 1 of our plan, and putting that together in a business plan, to seek funding support for the trail.
In April, the Adelaide100 was enthusiastically tested by Board members Alan Bundy, Ian Budenberg and me, and Rosie Budenberg. The Adelaide100 is a local long distance loop walk of over 100 kilometres. The Adelaide100 takes in the metropolitan sea front, the Adelaide Hills, and the River Torrens Linear Park. The best parts of nine parks feature. Extensive panoramic views and intimate remote bush settings are special.
