Hindmarsh River Walk

Spring 2018: The map below may not be available right now, please try again later.

We are experiencing severe rate limiting imposed by Google under their new map pricing arrangements. We will be implementing a solution to ensure as many people as possible can access the walking maps.

Under Google's new pricing structure, we will incur an annual fee in excess of AUD $5,000 for a service which was previously free. As a not-for-profit body largely lead by volunteers this is not an insignificant charge. You can support our work in promoting walking and walking trails with an membership from $22 per year.

About the Walking Trail

Picturesque walk that begins at the beach and follows the Hindmarsh River. Walk past Harrys Hole, a small swamp. Stand and listen to watch birds and frogs croaking.

This trail is a loop, which is comprised of the following trail segments:

  • The Paperbark Trail, through revegetated floodplain
  • The Wattle Trail
  • The McCracken Trail
  • The Waggon Trail

Explore the nearby Lagoon Trail, at the Hindmarsh River Estuary, which starts from the same Bridge Street carpark.
