Cape Jervis/ Cobbler Hill

Sun 25 Sep 2022

Walk name/location
Cape Jervis/ Cobbler Hill
Walk grade
Trail Walker
Description

Commencing at Cape Jervis, the coastal scenery along this region of the Fleurieu Peninsula is second to none, and is a lovely walk along the first section of the Heysen Trail. The trail begins with a meander along sandy coastal tracks and exposed hillsides, with views of Kangaroo Island and the dynamic Southern Ocean over your right shoulder. Walkers are often rewarded with sightings of seals & dolphins. The trail gradually develops into several undulations further along as you approach Blow Hole Beach within the Deep Creek Conservation Park. The walk ends after a much-anticipated hill climb for approx. 2km through native vegetation back to the vehicles.

This walk is a great introductory walk for those who are interested in undertaking the entire Heysen Trail, those who want to catch up a section, anyone wanting to relive this section of the Fleurieu Peninsula.

A bus will transport us from the vehicles to the start of the walk.

Please note: the bus does NOT transport walkers from Adelaide to the walk. After registration, walkers will be given directions to drive their vehicle to the meeting point which will be at the END point of the day’s walk. The cars remain at the meeting location, and the bus transports the group from the cars to the walk start point. From there, the group walks back to the cars.

To participate in this walk, you need to pay for the bus whether you’re using it or not .

BIOSECURITY MEASURES – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.
