Coastal gems on the menu for Park of the Month

Nestled along the coastline of Adelaide’s southern suburbs, Hallett Cove and Marino conservation parks provide vital green spaces for the community to connect with nature.

This February, National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) will celebrate these coastal gems as Park of the Month with a range of activities.

NPWS Ranger Courtney Heinjus said the Park of the Month activities would provide people with a great opportunity to come and check out the parks with some unique experiences on offer.

“There is so much to see and do and the location of these parks make them easy to access,” she said.

“There are some great walking trails offering spectacular views of the coastline and the Adelaide metropolitan area.

“Hallett Cove Conservation Park is also home to globally significant geological features that tell the story of an ice age some 280 million years ago when glaciers travelled over the South Australian landscape.”

NPWS has put together a program of activities to help you make the most of February in the parks. These include:

  • Guided snorkelling tours of Hallett Cove Beach
  • Forest bathing on the beach at Hallett Cove Conservation Park
  • Guided Family Nature Walk in Hallett Cove Conservation Park
  • Guided accessibility walk along the upgraded Botanical Trail in Marino Conservation Park
  • Nature drawing workshop with SA artist Gilbert Dashorst in Marino Conservation Park
