Did you catch the 9 News weather cross on Tuesday 2 May? If you did you would have seen the new Trails SA website featured as part of the broadcast.
The Office for Recreation and Sport provided funding to Recreation SA to review and redevelop the Trails SA website to promote the recreational trails experience in SA. You can find the website here - http://www.southaustraliantrails.com/
The Trails SA website provides a library of over 600 trail experiences across the state, whether you are looking for a leisurely afternoon stroll or multi-day wilderness adventure. You can explore by activity including walking, cycling, horse riding, scuba diving and canoeing or by a region within SA.
The website will soon feature accommodation options within the regions and allow bookings to be made online, therefore allowing visitors to SA the opportunity to explore and stay along the many trails we have.
Recent AusPlay research has shown that walking, cycling and bushwalking feature in the top 15 activities that adults participate in in South Australia, with the main motivators being physical health and fitness, enjoyment and being social.
With this in mind the new Trails SA website is a great resource for all South Australians to use to get out in the great outdoors and be active.
We acknowledge and respect Aboriginal peoples as South Australia's first peoples and nations, we recognise Aboriginal peoples as traditional owners and occupants of land and waters in South Australia and that their spiritual, social, cultural and economic practices come from their traditional lands and waters; and they maintain their cultural and heritage beliefs, languages and laws which are of ongoing importance; We pay our respects to their ancestors and to their Elders.
