Para Wirra National Park

Sun 4 May 2014

Walk name/location
Para Wirra National Park
Walk grade
Trail Walker

This is a bush-walk through very picturesque country linking the major features in the park. The scenery rivals some areas of the Flinders Ranges with its beauty, and the proximity to Adelaide is a bonus. Birds of prey and coloured birds in addition to native animals can be seen in the quieter northern parts of the park.

The terrain provides a good training ground for E2E walks etc.,as the route will be undulating, incorporating some significant climbs and gentle descents. Hopefully we can christen a new track not advertised as yet.

In the Flinders the quality and quantity of water in waterholes is usually noted. But in lieu of this proceedure an optional test on the ale temperature can be performed at the Blacksmiths Inn after the walk.

Please note the walk has been planned so that walkers will NOT be required to pay a park entry fee in addition to the FOHT fee.
