Dutchmans Stern to Eyre Depot to Buckaringa

Sat 28 to Sun 29 Sep 2019

Walk name/location
Dutchmans Stern to Eyre Depot to Buckaringa
Walk grade
End-to-End 10

Due to the logistic side of these walks, the days of the walks have been swapped around and we will be using the bus for pick ups and drops to and from the walks.

Day 1: Saturday 28th September 2019 Eyre Depot to Buckaringa 29kms

After climbing back into the range, walkers enter Mount Arden Creek which winds its way northwards. The gradual climb up the winding creek bed with its waterfalls and rocky sections can make progress very slow, but after Mt Arden South campsite the trail leaves the creek to Climb Mt Arden summit for spectacular 360 degree views. The trail then follows the ridge line and a pretty creek line to exit at Buckaringa.

Day 2: Sunday 29th September 2019

Dutchmans Stern to Eyre Depot 19kms

This is a deceptively tough walk with a bit of everything – undulating fire tracks with spectacular views, a rocky gorge and a gibber strewn floodplain.
