About the Walking Trail
The Bunyip Trail in Bonython Park/Tulya Wardli is predominately in its natural state and allows children and adults to explore the native bush, encouraging hands on participation through story boards and activites.
You can read the story ‘The Bunyip of Berkeley’s Creek’ as you walk the trail, and participate in activities from the Bunyip Trail Activity booklet.
You’ll see how the local biodiversity in the area has been improved and experience how the environment might have been before urbanisation.
The trail is a joint initiative by the Adelaide City Council and Children’s University Australia / University of Adelaide.
The trail is 260 metres each way, so is a 520 metre walk in total. Start the trail on the other side (eastern side) of the footbridge beside the small weir – access from Gate 4 off Port Road (opposite Phillips St). You can also enter the Gate 4 here on foot, from the Bonython Park tram stop.
