1. Million Paws Walk
Flock to Victoria Park on Sunday, 19 May to join 5,000 people and their doggos on a two or four-kilometer walk that raises much-needed funds for animals in need. After the walk, you and your furbaby can enjoy a village style atmosphere showcasing everything that RSPCA South Australia has to offer, including stallholders, food and drink, a main stage with live entertainment, doggy games, kids activities, dog agility demonstrations and much more. Plus, everyone gets a doggy bag to take home thanks to Hill’s Pet Nutrition. Register for the walk here.
2. Marino Conservation Park
This unique walking trail spans 7.2km from North Marino to South Hallett Cove. It conserves the last remaining stands of vegetation along this beautiful part of Adelaide’s coastline and is known for its rocky coast, small coves and rocky cliffs. If you’re after scenic views overlooking Brighton, Glenelg, Grange and the Marino Rocks Lighthouse – this walk was made for you! Be sure to take the lead and keep your dog under effective control.
3. Blackwood Forest Recreation Park
Blackwood Forest Recreation Park is a protected area located about 12km south of the Adelaide, in the suburb of Hawthorndene. The walking track is a 1.4km circuit (about a 45-minute walk) that winds through both pine forest and open land. What’s best about this park? It’s a dog off-leash zone! You’re furry friend will have the time of their life exploring the forest trails on offer.
