Construction complete

We are excited to announce that installation of the new fitness equipment has finished ahead of schedule and the equipment is now open to the public.

Consultation outcomes

During the consultation 228 people visited the Your Say page and 32 people provided feedback via the online survey. The revised fitness equipment selection has addressed and incorporated the community's valuable feedback. Additionally, this revised concept plan has minimal disturbance to the reserve.

A summary of the changes based on the engagement feedback we received are the following:

  • More stretching and aerobic elements to align with the existing ones, such as benches, push-up bars and steppers.
  • All proposed elements are on rubber softfall surfaces away from the existing garden beds.
  • All surrounding garden beds will be retained.


In April 2021, the outdoor fitness equipment at Tutu Wirra Reserve in Port Noarlunga was respectfully removed. This action was taken to acknowledge and honour the profound cultural significance of the Tilbruke Dreaming Track marker to the Kaurna and other Aboriginal communities. The Tjilbruke Dreaming Track, an ancestral journey of great importance, features ten cultural markers along its coastal path, each celebrating the integral role of natural springs in its narrative. Our intention was to ensure that the marker at Port Noarlunga is preserved and respected in a manner that befits its cultural importance.

This consultation was on the draft concept plan to install new fitness equipment in a different location within the reserve. We were unable to relocate the old equipment as originally planned due to its poor condition.

Tutu Wirra Reserve, located along the Esplanade is a Neighbourhood Family Park, as identified in Our Open Space Strategic Management Plan 2018-23(External link), catering to Port Noarlunga locals and visitors. View the location map here(External link).
