Walk The Yorke – Stansbury-Giles Point-Wattle Point

Sat 30 to Sun 31 Jul 2022

Walk name/location
Walk The Yorke – Stansbury-Giles Point-Wattle Point
Walk grade
Walk the Yorke End-to-End
Description

Saturday
A bus is hired for End-to-End and Extended walks. Each walker will need to pay the bus fee in addition to their walk payment.
The section from Stansbury to Wool Bay consists of a diversion inland past the Limestone mine at Klein Point. After that though the track weaves through native vegetation with great coastal views across the bay.  We continue past the silos of Port Giles to the Hickeys Point shelter.

Sunday

The trail continues through along the coast through Coobowie and Edithburgh.

Coobowie to Edithburgh is one of the Hero walks of the WTY.

Between Edithburgh and Sultana Point is the Mosaic Trail, lined with more than 40 nautically themed mosaic rock art works created by local people and community groups.

South of Sultana Point the coastline is especially rugged and scenic.

Suggested accommodation – Edithburgh

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.

Meal details

A group dinner has been booked at the Troubridge Hotel in Edithburgh for 6.30 on Saturday night.
It is this meal to which the RSVP as part of registration applies.

To spread the love I suggest we go to the Edithburgh Hotel on Friday night.
