Starting from the end of Hansen Street, Myponga, this circuit walk takes you along the edge of the Myponga Reservoir via the Myponga Reservoir Trail. Nestled near the township of Myponga on the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula, 60 kilometres south of Adelaide, is the Myponga Reservoir Reserve. The trail is ideal for walking, running and cycling, with room for families to enjoy a picnic. The trail follows the edge of the reservoir and takes you through open plains, forested areas and native vegetation, with towering gums lining much of the path. There are four dedicated lookout areas with scenic views, as well as numerous bench seats and picnic tables throughout the reserve providing rest spots. More than 120 bird species live in the area including some that enjoy life by the water and others that can be found inland. The reserve is also home to many grey kangaroos. The unsealed trail is a shared-use path for both cyclists and walkers, and is also suitable for prams. The trail is flat and the terrain undulates gently. If the reservoir is full, there may be some water across the trail. Be aware that dogs are not permitted in the reserve. 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.
