Starting from the Pingle Farm Trail Carpark on Commercial Road, Port Noarlunga South, this walk takes you on a circuit via the Pingle Farm Trail. The trail goes past the former home of one of the early farming families in the area. The ruins of the shed and farmhouse provide a glimpse into the lives and work of early settlers. The trail also goes through a replanted eucalyptus and sheoak woodland. There is ample signage along the trail, including informative displays at the trailhead with a map of the park and available trails. 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.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
