Sturt Gorge

This course will take you back to your childhood. Back to the days of climbing trees, splashing in creeks and playing hide and seek in the bush.

Sunday 8 September, 2024

You’ll follow winding single-track, travel through woodland slopes and bushlands, scramble along some boulders, and cruise along the creek lines. Don’t forget to take in the sweeping views of the hillsides.

Then there’s the creek crossings. You’re probably going to get wet feet. And if the race follows a soaking rain, you might even see waterfalls along Magpie Gully. 

There’s nature aplenty here. Look up to see koalas, look around to spot a grazing kangaroo and look down and you might spot an echidna digging for ants.

Originally inhabited and cared for by the Kaurna peoples, it’s not hard to see why Sturt Gorge is a favourite with the current locals.

This race is where your best adventurous self is really going to shine.

Sturt Gorge is an easy 30-minute drive from the city.
