Hallett Cove Conservation Park Coastal Walking Trail

Well-defined walking trails and boardwalks take visitors on a self-guided geological tour around the Park. You will need to allow about 1 hour for the full walk within the Park. Because of the number of steps, most of the trails are not wheelchair accessible, only the section behind the sand dunes to the end of the beach.

Walking Trails

The geological trail is part of the Adelaide coastal walking trail section, which extends from Kingston Park and Marino to the Port Stanvac desalination plant.

Because the Park extends to low water mark a rock platform and beach walk are options at low tide. If you are walking between June and October you may be fortunate enough to see sea lions basking or swimming close to the cliffs. Pods of dolphins can be seen cruising the coast almost daily.

Map of Walking Trails

Other trails within the Park lead walkers on side tracks:

  • to and from the Sugarloaf;
  • from Black Cliff around the rim of Amphitheatre;
  • along Waterfall Creek or
  • through the grassy woodland.

There is a railway station at each end of the Park, and so you can enter from one and leave from the other.

All marine species and rocks are protected and must not be removed or damaged.

Bikes, horses and dogs are not permitted in the park.
