Walk name/location
Wandallah to Dares Hill Summit Road based at Burra
Walk grade
End-to-End 7

Saturday – This remote and very undulating section gives walkers their first introduction to the grazing lands beyond Goyders Line.

Sunday – This section passes through Caroona Conservation Park and Tourilie Gorge, which is one of the lesser known gems of the Trail. Look out for the remnants of an old bullock track cut through the gorge.

NOTE – If you wish to walk on only one day, please contact the FOHT office to register for that day. The online registering system will only allow you to register for both walking days.
