I agree on this, but it is IMHO not correct to tag the cited situation
in Adelaide as a footway, because there is none. You could just as
well invent a few footways here:

if there is no footway, it shouldn't be tagged as such. If you can
walk on the grass, find a compatible method (i.e. not using footway
for noway).

You might tag it
surface =grass
