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.

Rotary Club of Drysdale - Service Excellence Awards

Share on

The Award is an initiative of the Rotary Club to acknowledge and encourage an awareness that service is paramount to good business and repeat business. The question is “is your business on target for providing outstanding service to your clientele?”

The Rotary Club of Drysdale have been running their Service Excellence Awards for the last two years. People in the local communities are being asked to nominate the business that impresses them most in Drysdale, Clifton Springs & Curlewis.

The worthy winners of the Service Excellence Awards in the past have been overwhelmed to know that their community think so highly of their Service.

The judges have a hard task deciding, using the five key customer service ideals - is the service tangible; does it respond to the customer’s needs and wants; is it reliable and timely with what is promised; providing an assurance to deliver what is promised and empathy towards customers.

It has become obvious there is a need to establish a special community based Excellence Award to show appreciation towards a person who through the business gives back to the Community he or she lives in.

Look out for the entry forms and get your entries in ASAP remember to nominate the business / businesses or people that impress you most with the service they provide.

The feedback from you - their customers, is so valued.

The Awards night will take place on Monday 2 May 2016.

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.
