Every move counts

If you want to start exercising more but aren’t sure where to begin, we have plenty of ideas to get you moving.

How you can add a short walk into your day

Taking a walk is an easy way to be active and it also provides a break from the rush of daily life. Here are a few ideas for fitting a short walk into your day.

Take a walk on the wild side

South Australians are lucky to live in a state full of diverse and interesting walking paths and trails. There is something to suit everyone’s interests.

There’s over 750 places to walks on our website, from a 1 hour walk near your home with your dog, to a half day hike in a national park, or a longer trail further afield, you’re only ever two feet from some of the best places in South Australia. View some of our shortlists of bests walks.
