Today we went exploring in Adelaide Hills. I found a really nice 45 minute bush walking track on Walking SA . Iím quickly beginning to really like this website. There is a particular section on there that has children and pram friendly walks along with Pram Friendly Walks in Adelaide. We went to the Heysen Trail Walk at Bridgewater. It is about 2 km return track.
We honestly didnít really start out too well because I parked at the end of the track instead of the start. It took me a few tries to work out exactly where I was going. Because I was at the end of the track, the description didnít sound right to me. We walked back to the beginning and it was so beautiful. Axl my 2 year old took his balance bike. It was a great track for that. I did have to carry the bike up a few stairs through the train but it wasnít an issue at all.
We got to the beginning and I didnít really know where I was meant to find this fairy garden. So we headed back towards the car. The fairy garden was at the car park, near where we parked. We found a few very small old fairy doors on some trees and I was actually quite let down. But then we decided to walk a little further and found them. It was so worth it. Axl loved it and they were so cute! He kept knocking on the doors trying to wake them up. I think itís so amazing that someone has made this for the public. It is such a special little treat for kids. And anything to keep their imagination alive these days is a must!
I will defiantly be going back to this track. Iíll make sure I park at the right car park next time though. I get nervous when going on bushwalks and hikes with Axl because you just donít know if it is pram or children friendly. This was a great distance for him and a bike worked really well. I wouldnít take my pram there though.
I filmed our little adventure. Please have a look.
