50 Pram and Wheelchair Accessible Walks and Hikes

Adelaide and South Australia has many walking trails and hiking paths that are accessible to prams, strollers and people with mobility issues, including wheelchairs. We’ve outlined some of the best ones below.

The walks can also be great for children to ride their bikes along with their parents walking beside them.

Kaiki Walk, Granite Island Circuit

Walk suitable for prams and strollers Walk suitable for those with mobility issues including wheelchairs

The 2.9km walk around Granite Island is a great way for people, including families with children and strollers, to discover the island.

For parents with prams, or those with mobility issues, including wheelchairs, we suggest walking anti-clockwise, which is to turn sharp right after leaving the the causeway. There is a long flight of steps at the other end of the trail, but this is easily avoided by taking the shortcut gravel ramped path from the top of the island. There are no other steps on the circuit trail. A review on PushAdventures.com.au notes that the start of the trail can be steep, and that the shortcut (the gravel ramped path) may be too steep for some people with mobility aids or wheelchairs, and they recommend returning via the way you came.
