Spend a little time in this historic town
Sometimes we can fall into a routine and drive past exactly the same main roads everyday without venturing into the back streets and taking the time to explore them a little bit; after all, we might find a favourite new spot to have a meal, go for a walk or simply wonder around.

Old Reynella is a small suburb located just off Main South Road; between Happy Valley and Morphett Vale, and although it is not a main attraction in Adelaide, it is worth a little visit if you happen to be in the area.

Old railway tracks are now a walking a bike path!

The memorial park located across the road from the local pub will give you plenty of information about Old Reynella's first vineyards, heritage buildings, railway service, horses changing station and flour mill building.

Most of these historic sites are still standing today, some have been slightly renovated and others repurposed such as the old railway tracks, now a walking and bicycle path or St Francis winery which offers accommodation, functions and very picturesque views of a small lake full of playful ducks.

Some of the houses around this little suburb date from the 1800's; they certainly add a lot of character to the streets and will help you visualise how local people lived in those days.

Depending on how long you have planned to visit, Old Reynella has plenty of small shops and large supermarkets, beauty, financial, health and travel services, a Neighbourhood centre for those wanting to try a class or attend a local event and of course a few good restaurants - Mr. India, The Crown hotel and a local coffee shop.
