RSL Walk is a 0.9km, grade 1 return hike, located in Belair National Park, South Australia. The hike should take approximately 20 mins to complete.

Hike Summary

The short 950m return walk along the RSL Walk trail links two memorial plantations.

The trail begins at the remnants of the historic Japanese cherry plantation, which was planted from 1922 as a living memorial to World War I soldiers. The trail follows the spring fed creek that flows through Sparkes Gully, finishing at the avenue of sequoias planted in the 1960s.

The Japanese cherry plantation was planted in 1922 to commemorate the Allied Victory of World War I. Remnants of the trees can still be seen, and they are a reminder of the past those they honour.

The avenue of sequoias was planted in 1962 as a memorial to Australian and American forces who served in World War Two, and in Korea.

The trail is graded as an Easy Walk, suitable for people of all abilities. It may be suitable for more adventurous wheelchair access, as it is a consistent 1m wide, fine gravel, gentle slopes, a bridge and no steps. But there are a couple of inclines, and the trail may be muddy after rainfall, and during autumn tends to be covered with damp leaf matter.

The return walk is 950m, or 425m each way.

The trailhead can be accessed by the Cherry Plantation Road, which is a bitumen road. The carpark is at the point where a road gate closes the remainder of the road.

You can walk your dog on this trail provided it remains on a lead.

About the region

Set in beautiful natural bushland, Belair National Park is just 25 minutes from Adelaide city centre. This is South Australia’s oldest national park, and is home to Old Government House – a significant heritage building. Also in the park is State Flora, the oldest plant nursery in South Australia and still going strong today. The park remains one of the few relatively undisturbed areas of native vegetation in the Adelaide Hills region, making it an important refuge for native plants and animals.
