EXCITING NEWS!

Initial work is commencing on the Witton Bluff Base Trail after Council was recently successful in obtaining a grant from the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure towards the design and construction of the project.

The Witton Bluff Base Trail project involves the construction of a shared use pathway around Witton Bluff, between the foreshore at Christies Beach and Port Noarlunga. The project is to seal the existing gravel path from the Christies Beach foreshore to the Bluff and continue with a new boardwalk pathway around the base of the cliffs and above the limestone shelf to the Port Noarlunga foreshore.

The Witton Bluff is an area of significant Aboriginal and European Heritage. We look forward to working with the Kaurna and broader community to ensure an appropriate and sensitive approach to design and construction of this important project in this special location.

It will provide a considerable tourist draw card, creating a unique experience with the shared use path close to the water’s edge.

It forms part of the State Government's Coast Park vision for Greater Adelaide to develop a coastal linear park including a 70km shared use path from North Haven to Sellicks Beach. Within our council area we have 31km of the Coast park trail we have divided into three sections; Northern, Central and Southern. Seventeen kilometres (17km) has already been completed. To learn more about each section, including timeframes for construction, please view the Coast Park Plan 2019.

This project also contributes to the City of Onkaparinga Tourism Strategic Plan 2019 – 2023, which identifies Port Noarlunga and Christies Beach as two key coastal villages; with the Port Noarlunga reef named as one of the most dived spots in South Australia and Port Noarlunga and Christies Beaches promoted by South Australian Tourism as part of the 5 best beaches in Adelaide.
