Today, Hallett Cove is a thriving hub of activity with a lovely community vibe. But look a little closer and you’ll discover that this suburb has a unique and fascinating story 

  

Positioned just 21 kilometres from Adelaide’s city centre, Hallett Cove is a coastal suburb adjoined by sister-suburbs Sheidow Park and Trott Park. 

Although named after John Hallett, who stumbled across the small beach in 1837 whilst out looking for his stock, its (much) earlier history is what truly defines it. 

This unassuming suburb is home to one of Australia - and the world’s - most significant geological and archaeological sitesArtefacts discovered along its coast confirm Aboriginal settlement dating back over 40,000 years, while its rocky outcrops and stunning clifftopallude to an ice age that swept Australia 280 million years ago. That is some serious heritage. 

By the 1840s, the cove was a perfect point for smugglers to bundle their seafaring loot onto the shorewhile a failed mining endeavour saw hapless miners leave to strike it lucky on the Victorian goldfields. 

With modern settlement only beginning in the late 1960s, those lucky enough to live hertoday are able to share in this amazing story 

Exploring the vast Hallett Cove Conservation Park is a popular pursuit for localsSeveral walking trails take you past creeks, gullies and freshwater springs to discover incredible rocky formations and ancient cliffs showing off magnificent layers. 

Nature lovers will revel in the coastal serenity whilst spotting dolphins, native birds and the occasional sea lion, while the 5km long Hallett Cove Boardwalk is as popular amongst fitness fanatics as it is those simply looking to catch a glimpse of a stunning sunset over Gulf St Vincent. 

During summer you’ll find families picnicking on the grassy foreshore while the kids enjoy the nature playgroundand the ever popular Boatshed Café serves up hot coffee for those early morning strolls along the coast. 

Kayakers get the chance to admire the cliffs from afar, while snorkelers can check out an abundance of underwater marine life and keen fishermen can throw a line in straight off the rocks.
