Event description

Come and join Port Environment Centre for a special Nature Festival event on Kaurna Country at Taperoo Beach.

Discovery Walks are designed to connect you with nature and community and are offered by Port Environment Centre.

We invite you to join us on a mindful, slow down walk. Awaken your senses, connect more deeply with the nature around you in this walk for wellness.

This mindful immersive walk is about deepening your connection with the coast and marine-scape. We'll begin with a nature inspiring meditation by the beach, experience invitations to connect deeper with the elements and finish with a silent journey through the Coastal Native Food Plants Labyrinth.

This is a slow down experience so our walking distance is short (less than 2km) and at times we will be standing, sitting or laying on the sand. Initially we head to the beach along dune trails (soft sand) where we'll cover a short distance while discovering Taperoo beach before finishing at the labyrinth.

This walk is approx. 1-2km over a 2 hour period and a basic level of fitness is needed. Walking surfaces include footpaths, compact gravel trail, soft sand, and seaweed.

Date: Sunday 15 October

Meet spot: Roy Marten Reserve Carpark Military Road Taperoo

Meeting time: please meet the group at 9.45am so we can all be ready to start promptly at 10am

There are public toilets at Roy Marten Reserve.

  • Comfortable walking shoes or thongs to remove for easier walking in the sand or dipping feet in the ocean

  • Warm layers that can be added/removed for comfort
  • Filled water bottle
