The Old Coach Link is a newly marked trail due to open in the first week of September 2017 as part of the Government of South Australia's $10 million upgrade of the Adelaide's national parks.
Start from Old Noarlunga, at either Gate 1 in Old Noarlunga (near the site of the former swingbridge), or from Gate 3 on Church Hill Road. There is a ford to cross from either start point, and generally the ford from Gate 3 has lower river levels. The trail follows the Old Coach Road fire track. The middle section of the trail is steep as the track ascends the open grassy ridge to the hill top. Near the top the trail follows the Pipe Line Track then the Tea Tree Track to Gate 29 on the corner of Sheoak Roads and Barytes Road.

About the region
In Onkaparinga River National Park, diverse hiking trails take you to cliff tops with magnificent views, or down to permanent rock pools teeming with life. You’ll see rugged ridge tops and the narrow river valley of the spectacular Onkaparinga Gorge. This park protects some of the finest remaining pockets of remnant vegetation in the Southern Adelaide region. Wherever you go, you’ll be among native wildlife such as birds, koalas, kangaroos and possums - you may even spot an echidna. Areas of the park were used as farmland for many years, so you can also discover heritage-listed huts and the ruins of houses built in the 1880s.
