This event has been cancelled (We have received advice from DEW (Dept for Environment and Water) of deteriorating conditions throughout the area. Significant rain forecast overnight tonight and a thunderstorm expected tomorrow afternoon. Rain continuing throughout Sunday. Creeks will be up and there is a chance that the bus may not get into Balquidder in these conditions. So sorry for you guys. We will come up with a new date for this walk shortly. An email will follow this evening re a local walk on Sunday and the opportunity to socialise. Paul, for the leadership group

A bus is hired for End-to-End walks. Each walker will need to pay the bus fee in addition to their walk payment. See description of End to End walks.
A picturesque section highlighting the diversity of the Heysen Trail. Photo opportunities abound, and you might even spot a whale.

This walk starts with spectacular views to Tunkalilla Beach followed by a picturesque walk through dense bushland before a steep descent to Boat Harbor Beach.

The very testing 4km walk along Tunkalilla Beach is followed by a very steep climb up to Balquhidder which makes it a unique and very memorable section of the Heysen Trail.
