End-to-End 9

A new End-to-End group commencing the entire Heysen Trail at Cape Jervis. Walking one Sunday a month during the walk season, we will progress up the 1,200km Heysen Trail to Parachilna Gorge over a number of years. End-to-End 9 is the ninth group to make this undertaking.

Read more about the End-to-End walk programme.

From the Cape Jervis trailhead, this section follows sandy coastal tracks and exposed coastal hillsides, providing spectacular views over Backstairs Passage to Kangaroo Island. Walkers are often rewarded with sightings of seals and dolphins. At Blowhole Beach the trail enters Deep Creek Conservation Park to begin the long climb through native bushland to Cobbler Hill.
