Jack Bobridge Track
The Jack Bobridge Track is a 27 km shared walking and cycling path, named after Jack Bobridge, a former professional racing cyclist who grew up in Gawler. There are two stages to the track, the first stage is Tanunda to Lyndoch (14 km). The track sweeps past majestic gums, vineyards and a few well known cellar doors. A particularly beautiful stretch is to start at St Hallet’s winery and ride or walk the track to St Hugo cellar door and restaurant or a little further along to Jacob’s Creek cellar door and restaurant. This section of the track is undulating and very scenic, following along the North Para river with native birds and animal wildlife to be seen as it winds its way through native bushland. The second stage is from Lyndoch to Gawler (13 km). Lyndoch is one of South Australia’s oldest towns and there you will find family owned cellar doors, cafes and restaurants offering German style meals and smallgoods. The Lyndoch Bakery is a great spot for morning tea or a light lunch. The route travels through a magnificent rose garden, pristine conservation and recreation parks continuing on to Gawler, a thriving regional commercial and retail centre.
