Description

Note well: we are walking this weekend out of the normal order

Saturday – Worlds End to Burra: Although primarily a long, flat, treeless walk, along dirt roads and road reserves, this section provides walkers with a perspective on the diversity of landscapes of the Trail. The final few kilometres provide pleasant views over the historic Burra township.

Sunday – Burra to Wandallah: This section of the Trail goes through historic Burra, passing the old Redruth Gaol and other reminders of a bygone era. The trail then takes walkers over the exposed hills of the North Mount Lofty Ranges. Office please note, no bus fee for Sunday walk, we will be using a car shuffle

Monday – Burra Rd to Worlds End: The trail crosses undulating farmland before entering the scrubland of the Hallelujah Hills. The day finishes with an easy stroll to Worlds End Gorge.

If you would like to register for only one or two of the walk days, PLEASE call the office to register after registrations open

Accommodation recommended in Burra
