Brookfield Conservation Park is a great place to spot birds, kangaroos and appreciate a mallee landscape . You can drive safari style around the park, and there are a couple of places where you can park and go for a walk. Note most of the roads within the park are one direction only.

Mudflats and crabbing are what Thompson Beach is all about. And also the Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary. The sanctuary is a great place for a walk, even if you are not a twitcher.
Altona Reserve is a great place for a walk. Views, roos, birds. On the blue loop, as well as some lovely vistas there are also some slightly surreal ‘rest area’ signs – meaning there is a bench seat somewhere not far away.
Altona Reserve – another beautiful local Barossa locality. Lovely bushland and three different walks you can do – so far we’ve tried the orange loop and the blue loop.
In the past couple of weeks we have had some rides and a walk in/through Clonlea Reserve in Gawler. It’s a very pretty park with some lovely old gum trees. A great space to exercise when you can’t go far from home.
The Stuart O’Grady bikeway runs from Gawler to Adelaide. Not exactly the most exciting scenery but it’s so much better than riding on the road.
Mudla Wirra is a small reserve near the town of Wasleys. It’s known as a great birding spot. Although we didn’t see many birds the day we were there it was interesting bushland and we will definitely be back for another visit. We did see an elegant parrot and I can’t wait to return inContinue reading “Mudla Wirra walk”

On our first visit to Sandy Creek Conservation Park we saw quite a few birds, including babblers, a brown goshawkContinue reading “Sandy Creek Wren Walk in Autumn”
Everyone has to stay at home – but thankfully we are allowed to go out to exercise. Riding is the best exercise. It seems even more wonderful to be out having spent most of the week at home. There are a number of tracks around Gawler town and the handful of times we have beenContinue reading “Gawler bike ride”
