SATURDAY 25th SEPTEMBER
A deceptively tough walk with a bit of everything-undulating firetracks with spectacular views, rocky gorge sections, crisscrossing of the creek, one testing little climb out of the gorge and a 5 klms traverse of the gibber strewn floodplain to Eyre Depot plus a final 1.5 km gibber littered walk out to the Bus.
For this walk the Bus will drop us off at the start of the walk and also pick us up at the end for the one and half drive back into Quorn.
SUNDAY 26th SEPTEMBER
Starting at Dutchmans Stern with a detour off the Heysen Trail we will firstly do the 6 km Dutchman Stern loop- it will provide a memorable highlight of the walk – the view is breathtaking.
The remainder of the walk will gradually climb through farmlands, along firetracks and native woodland back towards Quorn
As this walk we will done in reverse we will park our cars at McConville Rd (near Quorn) the start of the section from where the bus will pick us up and take us to Dutchmans Stern from where we will walk back to our cars.
Dinner on Saturday night will be at Emily’s Bistro in Quorn.
The theme for the dinner will be your favourite sporting attire – it will be the AFL Grand Final evening.
