Registrations for October’s Day on the Heysen Trail – The Warren Bonython Memorial Walk event open on Sunday, April 14. We’ll be launching the event in a very unique way, at the Opening of the Walk Season at Elder Park.
A Walk Selector tool is now available – you can sort through the 60 sections of the trail to determine which one to hike on the day. Visit www.heysentrail.asn.au/wb-walk to preview the 60 sections. View the individual section pages to see a map, fuller description and more photos of that section of the Heysen Trail.

There are two environmental programs in the coming month.
Firstly, the Cape Jervis Coastal Community Group is having a working bee on Saturday 6 April and Sunday 7 April, removing tree guards from Lands End, which will be repurposed elsewhere along the Heysen Trail, collecting plant material and a cuttings workshop. Further information is available on the CJCCG’s website.
Secondly, there is a Cactus Kill week near Palmer, organised by the SA Murray Darling Basin NRM Board. From Monday 29 April to Friday 3 May, accommodation is available, and day-trippers are welcome. Further information.
