Cyclists and walkers can use a trail that runs the 30 km length of the park, leading from Gorge Road, Athelstone in the North-East, through the Northern Parklands of Adelaide, to the Torrens River mouth at Henley Beach. In the Parklands section, the river runs past many notable landmarks including the Adelaide Zoo, the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, the Festival Theatre and Elder Park.

There are shared-use pedestrian and cycling paths along both sides of the river for most of the length of the park, and along one side of the O-Bahn Busway.

Drysdale Rotary art show celebrates its 40th year

Rotary Club of Drysdale’s prestigious Annual Easter Art Show is fast approaching.

The 40th event will be held at Christian College Sports Stadium in Drysdale and will showcase the talents of local artists, as well as those from further afield. It is expected that around 500 artworks will be entered.

In previous years, the event has raised up to $20,000, which is donated to benefit many local and international projects.

Drysdale Rotarians are currently selling raffle tickets across the Bellarine, at Drysdale, Curlewis, Portarlington and St. Leonards. Tickets are just $1, and funds raised go to support Cystic Fibrosis Geelong. First prize is a painting by the wonderful artist Richard Jones.

The Show will take place over the Easter weekend Saturday March 26 (10am-5pm) and Sunday March 27 (10am–4pm).

Admission: $8 (including catalogue)

Concession: $6 children under 12 free

About Drysdale

Drysdale is a rural township near Geelong, Victoria, Australia, located on the Bellarine Peninsula. The town has an approximate population of over 3700. The town is named after Anne Drysdale whose estate "Coriyule" still sits above the township. The area was formerly known as McLeod's Waterholes and Bellarine. A township began to develop in the late 1840s and a Post Office (known as Bellarine until 1862) opened on 1 January 1855. From 1902 until 1951 Murrudoc Post Office to the west operated in the area also known as Murradoc. The railway reached the local railway station from South Geelong on the way to Queenscliff in 1879, and remained in Victorian Railways service until 1976. It is now the western terminus of the tourist orientated Bellarine Peninsula Railway. The station lies next to Lake Lorne, an important regional site for waterbirds.
