Sure we all want to get out in nature and enjoy the serenity but where and how can you do that with a baby and/or toddlers?
Never fear, Beyond Bank  staff have put together a list of our favourite family-friendly nature walks around Australia.
So get out there this spring and take the opportunity to reconnect with loved ones through walking and talking.
Shepherd Hills Recreation Park, St Mary’s SA 
Popular with dog walkers and mountain bike riders this park features a series of wide paths along with an old railway tunnel and stunning views of the Adelaide skyline.
You can get lost in here for hours and there lots of ways for kids (and parents!) of all ages to explore and connect with nature.
River Torrens Linear Park Trail – Breakout Creek, Lockleys SA 
Following extensive restoration work by Greening Australia, the River Torrens Linear Park Trail between Lockley’s and Henley Beach is now bursting with native flora and fauna.
This section of the River Torrens is a peaceful place where families can enjoy a picnic, ride bikes or lull little ones to sleep in the pram. You can walk for as long as you like as the linear trail extends right through the City of Adelaide.
