Walk 3: Tappanappa – Balquhidder

Sat 10 Jul 2021

Walk name/location
Walk 3: Tappanappa – Balquhidder
Walk grade
End-to-End 15
Description

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 Balquidder which makes it a unique and very memorable section of the Heysen Trail.

“PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU USE HAND SANITIZER PRIOR TO BOARDING AND WEAR A FACE MASK THROUGHOUT THE BUS TRIP”
