Marino is a coastal suburb in the south of Adelaide, South Australia that’s surrounded by a conservation park and rugged coastline. Marino’s elevated position provides panoramic views of the ocean - Gulf St Vincent, the metropolitan beaches and Adelaide CBD. Marino has access to the North or South via Brighton Road, has two railway stations on the main Seaford Line and a host of walking and cycle trails to the neighbouring beaches and wine region.
Marino is directly 13km south west of Adelaide CBD, 3km south west of South Australia’s largest shopping complex Westfield Marion and 14km north west of the McLaren Vale wine region.
The suburb is home to Marino Rocks beach, which sits below the cliff tops and features a flat rocky beach with a boat ramp leading out to a reef on the southern end of Kingston Park/Seacliff. Fishing, kayaking, sailing and snorkelling are common recreation activities.
Many people also use this section of the coastline to exercise while enjoying the views from the trails that run along the Marino cliff tops.
At the northern end of the beach, the public artwork Contemplation can be viewed, by artist Marijana Tadic. Launched in 2006, the artwork takes the form of a rocked boat.
The artwork looks out over the ocean and marks the change from the rocky shoreline at Marino Rocks to the sandy beaches of neighbouring Seacliff.
Also as of 2006, at the access point to the beach, there is a mosaic artwork designed and constructed by South Australian artist Michael Tye.
