- Walk grade
- Walk the York End to End
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 2021 we will walk from Moonta to Marion Bay and in 2022 we will walk from Port Wakefield to Marion Bay.
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.
Conversely, if there is sufficient interest, it may be possible to reduce the bus fee.
Saturday – 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.
Public toilets are located at the start and at the 3km mark of today’s walk.
Sunday has it all …
Vibrant red cliffs, tranquil sheoak woodlands and crisp white sandy beaches with calm blue waters.
This peaceful and isolated environment is a haven for both woodland and coastal birdlife.
Public toilets are at the 7km mark and at the end of today’s walk.
Suggested accommodation – Moonta Bay
For those interested in walking the complete WTY but unable to attend this weekend, please email Peter Clark re the possibility of joining leaders when they reconnoiter this weekend’s walk.
NOTE – If you wish to walk on only one day, please contact the FOHT office (once bookings have opened) to register for that day’s walk. The on-line registration system will only allow you to register for both days.
