Dolphin Trail

Port Adelaide is a seaport city, well known for its maritime heritage. Only a 20 minute drive from Adelaides city centre, its also one of Adelaides most popular tourist destinations, with many attractions to offer its visitors.

Wild dolphins are one of those attractions and they can be discovered in the wealth of natural environments throughout the area. The estuary provides a home to one of Adelaides best-loved creatures, the Bottlenose Dolphin!

A trail has been developed to provide you with a rare opportunity to unobtrusively watch the dolphins from the shore. Six interpretive signs have been positioned along the waterfront, each providing details about that location and the dolphins that can be found there.

Although dolphins dont appear on request, these locations are some of the most common areas in which dolphins are seen. The trail provides an opportunity to discover the diversity of the Port region and explore what it has to offer along its coast, island, marina, river and beaches.
