After the 3 klms walk-in to rejoin the Trail, it heads north climbing through grazing land and native scrublands up to Mt Brown. The summit provides spectacular views of the northern Spencer Gulf, especially from the viewing tower. A picturesque largely single file descent leads down to a classic Flinders Ranges creek walk along Waukarie Creek. The final ascent to Mt Brown includes some scrambling over rocks.

Overall a fairly tough but rewarding walk.


A steady climb to start the day takes walkers to the top of the range and views over Pichi Richi Pass. After a tricky section following the ridgeline for a few kilometres the trail descends into the Pass again. Much of the remainder of the walk is spent alongside or near the historic Pichi Richi railway line, passing remnants of deserted sidings and settlements. After crossing over the Pt Augusta Road the final section is a gentle walk through grazing land and may provide glimpses of a small herd of Camels.

Dinner on Saturday night will be in Quorn at Emily’s Bistro at 6.15pm.

The theme for the weekend is Cinema and Movie Stars – in recognition of the many films that have been shot around Quorn.
