“A brilliant place to watch the birds”
Reviewed 13 December 2012

The Billabong has been revitalised and replanted and it provides a sanctuary, of sorts, for birdlife. Take your field glasses. It is a pleasant and peaceful place to walk and sit - close to an extensive riverside walk, a BBQ area and an oval for the children to play.

“lovely open family space and its free”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

The Billabong has both the water side area with birdlife, and a huge green oval open space bordered by large trees, the billabong and the River Torrens with ducks. A fave place for kids and a ball, family games, people walking their dogs, and overlooking the oval there are public toilets and a shaded BBQ area.The linear park cycle track goes through on the river side and not far away there is also an adventure playground. You feel like you are in the country, while you are just minutes from easy parking on one of two or three street entrances nearby. We usually access the area from the end of St Peters St, St Peters. Free and great for kids and walks.

“Tranquil natural billabong area adjacent to the Torrens River Linear Park in St Peters”
Reviewed 24 August 2011

The St Peters Billabong is a wetland in inner suburban Adelaide, whch has been restored to its natural state prior to European settlement.

The pond area of the billabong is a remarkable 1.4 hectares. Native plants flourish in ther area.

While it offers an example of well preserved (and restored) natural environment, it's easily accessible from the River Torrens Linear Park.

It's an interesting and tranquil place to visit while you're enjoying a stroll along the Linear Park.
