Moderate track
Starting from the Gate 1 carpark on North East Road, Tea Tree Gully, this circuit walk takes you along the edges of Anstey Hill Recreational Park via the Boundary, Water Gully, Range Road South and Ellis Way tracks. Anstey Hill Recreational Park offers unique experiences for walkers, including beautiful displays of wildflowers dotted along the trails and the extensive ruins of a 19th-century nursery. The park's steep gullies, creek lines and views of Adelaide city provide a spectacular backdrop for bushwalkers, birdwatchers and photographers to enjoy. An extensive network of walking trails showcases the park's variety of plant species and habitats. Discover this park's unique features, including ruins of the original Newman's Nursery, and keep an eye out for the many yellow-tailed black cockatoos, blue wrens, kangaroos, koalas and echidnas that live in the park. Gate 1 has toilet facilities, and there is clear signage throughout. Although the inclines on this walk are manageable, there are some steep sections and uneven surfaces that can be moderately challenging. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
