3. Encounter Bikeway
This is the perfect place to go for a family bike ride. The track is 29.5km one-way, but obviously you can cut it short for the little guys.
Not only will you enjoy the great trails, but this place is also blessed with amazing views of the coast. If you need a rest, there are cafes and parks along the way. Why not take a breather and have a coffee whilst the kids run amok?
Goolwa, South Australia 5214
4. Shepherds Hill Recreation Park
Shepherds Hill Recreation Park not only has some good bike trails for the whole family, but there are also some pretty awesome activities to soak up on the way through. Take in the panoramic views surrounding the Adelaide plains and coastline, before exploring the old railway tunnel (note: kids and parents will find this one really interesting).
Ayliffes Rd, St Marys SA 5042
5. Linear Park Trail
This bike track is perfect for parents and children alike. It’s a safe and quiet trail, away from the traffic which puts every worrisome parent’s mind at ease.
Throughout the trail, there are playgrounds you can stop off at… the kids can play (and you can rest)! There are also little bridges you can ride over (snap it for your family photo album).
Just like a scene from a movie, there are ducks you can feed at the water’s edge, along with paddle boats to hire for the little (and curious) ones.
Henley Beach to Athelstone, Henley Beach SA 5022
