Kingston Park Coastal Reserve, Lookout & Aboriginal Tjilbruke Trail

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

The Kingston Park Coastal Reserve and Lookout is a must see for any visitor. On top of the cliff overlooking both Tjilbruke Spring and the Kingston pines, is the John Dowie Rock Sculpture commemorating the Aboriginal Dreaming story about the spring offers spectacular views of the Holdfast Bay coastline. Learn the Dreamtime story of Tjilbruke and enjoy a picnic with family and friends at the coastal reserve. There is plenty of shade, tennis courts, play equipment, toilets and BBQ.

The Kingston Park cliff face is a natural reserve that supports many native animals including echidnas and blue tongue lizards and over 76 indigenous plant species.

The Tjilbruke Spring site is of great cultural importance and spiritual significance to the Kaurna people and to the wider Aboriginal population. For thousands of years the permanent freshwater spring has been bubbling away in the sand and once formed a freshwater coastal lagoon.

The sacred spring site is part of the extensive Tjilbruke Dreaming Story. Tjilbruke is an important Dreaming ancestor to Kaurna people and the Tjilbruke spring site along with the Dreaming Story remains sacred to the Kaurna people today.
