If you live within 5 kilometres of Flinders, walking is a viable transport option. It should take no more than an hour each way for the full 5 kilometres. If you live further away, consider combining a walk with public transport.
Flinders has flora, fauna, scenery and views to enjoy while walking around the campus. There are designated walking paths that link the different faculties and facilities as well as the 3 major hubs on the campus: Sturt precinct, Main precinct and the Medical Centre. There is lighting on all pedestrian paths and the Green Transport Office can provide information about disability access.
Shared pedestrian/bicycle paths lead onto the campus from Bellevue Heights, University Way and Sturtbrae Cresent near Sturt Road. There are pedestrian paths on all main roads that lead to the campus, with islands and crossings designated for safety purposes.
If you live south in Flagstaff Hill, Pasadena, St Marys or Panorama you can take part of your walk through recreation parks. If you live in Sturt, Seacombe Gardens or Marion, you can incorporate the beautiful Warraparinga Wetlands.
