Adelaide Kaurna Walking Trail

About the Walking Route

Take a walk through Adelaide’s rich Kaurna heritage with this walking trail. The Kaurna (pronounced ‘Gar-na’) people are the traditional owners and custodians of the Adelaide Plains. This trail will take you to places of significance to Kaurna culture and heritage. You’ll learn about traditional Elders and discover their stories of the past as told through art and word.

The trail invites reflection on Kaurna life before European settlement and explores the impact of this settlement on Aboriginal people.

The first 17 sites can be viewed in a 2-3 hour 9.7km walk beginning at the Peace Foundation’s Reconciliation Sculpture located outside the Adelaide Festival Centre. The walk ends at Tarntanyangga / Victoria Square.

The Kaurna Walking Trail was planned in collaboration with the Peace Foundation and the Kaurna people, the traditional owners and custodians of the Adelaide plains.

2020 note: major works are being undertaken around the Adelaide Festival Centre so some access around there may be limited.
