CANCELLED: Walk the Yorke – Moonta Bay to Tiparra Springs

Sat 30 May 2020

Walk name/location
Walk the Yorke – Moonta Bay to Tiparra Springs
Walk grade
Extended Walk
Description

This is the start of a series of walks – to walk the whole of the ‘Walk the Yorke’ over two years of weekends away.
In 2020 we will walk from Moonta to Marion Bay and in 2021 we will walk from Port Wakefield to Marion Bay.
Currently there are two weekends listed on the Friends’ website …
May 30 and 31 will take us from Moonta Bay to Balgowan
June 27 and 28 will take us from Balgowan to Port Rickaby.

The bus fee collected during registration will be used to fund a bus to take walkers from the meeting point at the end of the day’s walk back to the starting point.
If there are insufficient registrations to make that cost-effective the funds will be refunded and a car-shuffle organized to enable the walk to proceed regardless.

We will start with one of the Hero Walks…
This section will feature long sections of beach walking.
At Cape Elizabeth vast sand dunes are a haven for birdlife. Cormorants, Grey Herons, Hooded Plovers and the rare Sooty and Pied Oystercatchers can all be seen wading along the shore.
The dunes also provide a habitat for many species of coastal plants and animals.
