Coast to Vines Rail Trail including the Shiraz Trail

About the Walking Trail

This trail begins at the train station at Marino Rocks and follows an old railway corridor south to McLaren Vale and Willunga. The one-way distance is 38km. The section from McLaren Vale to Willunga is known as the Shiraz Trail. That trail is flatter and more scenic, taking in wineries and vineyards, than the northern section of the Coast to Vines Trail which goes through suburbs.

Walk options:

  • Full Coast to Vines Trail, 38km one-way
  • Shiraz Trail, from McLaren Vale (Almond Train) to Willunga, 7.4km one-way. From the Shiraz Trail you can walk the 3.6km spur trail the Flat to Vale Trail from McLaren Vale to McLaren Flat.

The northern-most section of the Coast to Vines Trail follows some roadside paths. The better trail begins at Old Reynella, heading south.

The shared-use trail is generally bitumised wide path, following a tree-lined raised railway embankment.

The Shiraz Trail, south of McLaren Vale, could be considered wheelchair friendly.
