APPA offers two types of Guided walks through the Park Lands. There are hosted walks with a Park Ambassador, and there are also self-guided walks, using a smartphone app (or website) to either read, or hear commentary through selected sections of the Park Lands.
We are in the process of producing "trail guides" for each of the separate Parks that together make up the Adelaide Park Lands. As each trail guide is completed, the National Trust is making it available through their "Adelaide City Explorer" website and smartphone app. If you have a smartphone, we suggest downloading the app, for the best experience. Search for "Adelaide City Explorer" at the Google PlayStore or the iPhone App Store. Alternatively, follow the links from the "Adelaide City Explorer" website.
If you don't have a smartphone or you'd prefer to bypass the smartphone app, you can stay within the "Adelaide City Explorer" website, on a laptop or tablet, at these links:
- Bragg Park / Ngampa Yarta (Park 5)
- Bundey's Paddock / Tidlangga (Park 9)
- Red Gum Park / Karrawirra (Park 12)
- Rundle Park / Kadlitpina (Park 13)
- Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi (Park 16)
- Blue Gum Park / Kurangga (Park 20)
These are the only ones available, so far. More self-guided walking "trail guides" will be coming soon. We expect that by July 2018 there will be at least eight different trail guides available, for self-guided tours through different parts of the Adelaide Park Lands.

APPA GUIDED WALKS
APPA has several Park Ambassadors - simply volunteers who've agreed to once a year, lead a guided walk through "their" Park, i.e. their favourite chosen part of the Adelaide Park Lands. It's just a few people helping to share the love of the Adelaide Park Lands - each of us sharing our favourite part with you.
The next Guided walks are:
Sunday 8 July 2018 - 2.00pm to 3.30pm Red Gum Park / Karrawirra (Park 12)
Meet at the traffic lights on Victoria Drive, at the southern end of the University footbridge over the Torrens. Details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/630280660653206/
