- Extended Walk
An opportunity for walkers to experience another 6 picturesque sections of the Heysen Trail in a “single hit “”from where last year’s South Coast Walk finished at the delightful hamlet of Inman Valley to continue the journey north through more of the wonderful countryside of the Fleurieu Peninsula into the southern reaches of the Adelaide Hills culminating with the final walk climbing up to Mt Lofty summit and down to the nearby Cleland Wildlife Park.
Another full week of walking on the Trail designed to enable walkers especially those from beyond Adelaide, whether from intrastate or interstate, the opportunity to complete these beautiful sections in a single block rather than the normal schedule of an end to end group.
Those walkers who undertook last year’s South Coast Walk will be offered an early link to register for the weeks walking on Thursday 10th June, three weeks prior to the opening of Registrations on Thursday 1st July.
Please note this is an extended walk for people wanting to do the entire week of walking and not those wishing to to do selected day walks.
All the walk leaders are currently leading end to end groups and have each personally completed the trail on one or more occasions.
For each walk, walkers will need to drive themselves to the end location for the walk, from where a bus will take them to the start of the walk. Please note that with the exception of the FIRST WALK the meeting locations for the other WALKS are all within an HOURS DRIVE of ADELAIDE, so those coming from Interstate OR Intrastate locations may confidently choose to stay in accommodation in Adelaide for the week of walking.
Some of these walks are challenging so please ensure you come physically prepared for a great week of walking on the Heysen Trail.
Should you have any questions regarding the walk please feel free to contact John Babister at; firstname.lastname@example.org or 0409616270.
