Belair Golf Course …..that was

The nice old Clubrooms.

I remember having a lovely meal at the Golf Course clubrooms many years ago but in early 2018 it apparently became uneconomical to keep the course going and since then things have deteriorated.

Golfers wouldn’t be happy about the state of the course but it’s a nice place to walk especially since you’re not expected to hit a ball then walk after it again and again until it eventually falls in a hole.

Dogs on leads are allowed on the course.

There are native plants and feral ones on the course.

I was surprised that we didn’t see any wallabies or kangaroos but there was some wildlife about.

Torrens Linear Park – Section 2

Only a serious walker would do the 30 kms of Linear Park in one go so I’m dividing it up, Section 1 was “The Breakout” and this next section starts where that finished.

There are a variety of tracks along the northern side of the river.

I grew up in this area but it looks very different since remediation work has been carried out.

There are plenty of places to simply stop and savour the environment.

Native trees have replaced the Willows which are invasive and their roots erode riverbanks.

The bridge at Findon Rd was our turning point.

On the southern side of the river the path is closer to houses and it’s clear that there has been considerable redevelopment over the last 35 years.

Being a walk beside water there have to be birds.

We crossed the river using the big stones rather than trying to negotiate the trucks on the bridge then took the path with the mosaics back to the car.
