Saturday Walk Details: Tanunda to Kapunda – 25km
This section takes walkers along back roads and road reserves past vineyards and wineries of the Barossa Valley, through the small town of Greenock and into the cropping and grazing land of the Lower North. It is a long but mainly flat walk with only a few undulations. Pleasant vistas and changing seasonal colours make this a pretty walk, with a finish at Kapunda in easy walking distance to bakeries or pubs.
Saturday Night Function (Optional): Kapunda Trotting Club (when registering Select “RSVP” if you wish to come and then Click on “Event Details” to see more details).
Sunday Walk Details: Kapunda to Hamilton – 24 km
From Kapunda we head northwest along backroads and tracks to Black Joes Road, then mainly north along fence lines and tracks to the old telephone exchange at the crossroads. The walk is over undulating mainly open country of the lower North Mount Lofty Ranges.
Fitness: The Heysen Trail walks are demanding and suitable for experienced walkers who have walked regularly in various terrain consisting of long-distance trails with some steep inclines/declines, irregular surface with loose uneven, slippery base. They have a walking time of about 5 to 7 hours and will require a good degree of physical fitness.
Biosecurity Measures – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.
