EE George Quarry to Spalding Rd to Chlorinator

Sat 13 to Sun 14 Aug 2022

Walk name/location
EE George Quarry to Spalding Rd to Chlorinator
Walk grade
End-to-End 13

Saturday – EE George Quarry to Spalding Rd: Most of this section is spent walking south, initially along the crest of Brown Hill Range, following the remnants of an old 1840s stone wall (the longest in SA). It is quite an undulating walk, with little shelter from the elements, however the views make up for any discomfort. The last 5-6 km follow rural back roads to the main Spalding to Burra road.

Sunday – Spalding Rd to Chlorinator: This is a very flat, but unique walk that follows the Freshwater intake channel for Bundaleer Reservoir, only leaving it for a few km to go through Spalding. Walkers will see some fascinating examples of engineering from the early 1900s.

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