Starting near The Plant Accelerator at the end of Hartley Grove, Urrbrae, this walk leads to Harold's Lookout and back via the WCR Access and Wild Dog's Glen tracks. The Waite Conservation Reserve protects an important remnant of original grassy woodland along the hilly backdrop to Adelaide, and is home to hundreds of species of native plants as well as kangaroos, koalas and echidnas. This scenic hike to Harold's Lookout rewards walkers with fantastic city views. There is plenty of signage throughout, including informative boards detailing the areas history, vegetation and wildlife. There are also a few benches along the way that make for peaceful resting spots. The walk starts with a mostly flat gradient, followed by a steep and rocky climb to the lookout. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
