Hike Summary

There are excellent shady cuttings, underpasses, original embankments and bridges

The Coast to Vines trail is a great day or weekend destination on the Fleurieu Peninsula
The track has a sealed surface for most of the distance
Gradients are gentle, except where some bypasses go around old bridge sites

From Marino Rocks Station, the trail runs south beside the railway to Hallett Cove.  It is a bit undulating, but frequent stops will be needed to take in the ocean views.

From here the trail is a wide, well vegetated reserve through the suburbs linking together other conservation reserves and parks.
Major road crossings have traffic islands or lights.

About the region

South Australia has made a name for itself as a relaxed region full of wine, wildlife and natural wonder. Its capital of Adelaide is home to a sophisticated art and dining scene, and the ‘Festival City’ knows how to celebrate, with a calendar full to the brim with events. Beyond the capital city, undulating wine regions produce classic Australian drops, migrating whales glide along rugged coastline and koalas snooze among the treetops on wind-swept islands.
