About the Walking Trails
Enjoy a walk along the foreshore at Stansbury along one to three sections of the Stansbury Coastal Trail. Stages 1 and 2 are wheelchair friendly. Walk Stages 1 and 3 as one walk. The trail forms part of the Walk the Yorke trail.
The trails were developed by the Stansbury Progress Association.
There are three sections (note they are not numbered in order), starting from the north (Adelaide) end of Stansbury:
Stage 2, from the town jetty along the foreshore to the Foreshore Caravan Park, wheelchair friendly, 1km one-way (2km return)
A paved pathway promenades along the foreshore through the Stansbury Seaside Market sites and children’s playground. Adult gym equipment is located along this section of the walking trail. Dolphins can often be seen gracing the shallow waters of the bay in the early morning and late afternoon.
Stage 1, from the Foreshore Caravan Park, heading south to along the foreshore to the cemetery, wheelchair friendly, 2.7km return
The walk offers great views of the Gulf St Vincent, the Adelaide Hills and Gile Point jetty and silos. Along the beach pelicans, black swans and many other water birds can be seen wading in the shallows. Interpretive signage of the many different bird species is situated along the trail.
Turn around at the cemetery, or continue on with Stage 3.
Stage 3, continuing on from Stage 1 at the cemetery, heading south along trails and the beach to Brick Beach and Pitts Cutting, returning along inland trails to the cemetery, 2.4km return
Either start from the cemetery or as an extension to Stage 1 (Stage 1 and 3 is 4.9km return). Appreciate the elevated coastal views from many vantage points along the cliff top and enjoy low scrub with it’s diversity of nature, grasses and bird life. Near the lookout above Pitts Cutting there is an area of native wildflowers.
