There’s plenty of short hikes that are great for kids under 7, with opportunities to explore nature and see wildlife.
Throughout October we’re celebrating walking with #WalktoberSA.
This article complements the Best Walks for Kids 7-12yo article we recently published.
16 Great Hikes and Walks for Kids Under 7
Punchbowl Lookout Walk
2km, 1 hour return
A new trail opened in September 2017. The one kilometre trail visits a new lookout above The Punchbowl, where you can see spectacular views into the Onkaparinga Gorge. The trail is a consistent one metre wide and made of compacted gravel, and with gentle contoured gradients, so as such is suitable for those with mobility access issues, including wheelchairs and prams. There is some seating mid-way along the trail.
