Webb Gap to Burra Road to Worlds End. Based in Burra
Walk grade
End-to-End 6
Description

SATURDAY 14 JUNE

The trail continues along the Tothill Range, providing expansive views over surrounding farmland and Apoinga Lagoon. A sharp climb after Huppatz Hut provides us with a taste of things to come in future walks.

SUNDAY 15 JUNE

A short walk across paddocks to the crossing of the Morgan-Whyalla pipeline is followed by an interesting walk through an area of the Halleluja Hills before reaching Worlds End Road. Once off this road, we finish the day’s walking near the Burra Gorge Campground.

SATURDAY EVENING MEAL – The Burra Community School will cater for the meal. They are fundraising to send their Year 7 students to Canberra later in the year.

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.

NOTE – Bookings close earlier than normal due to catering requirements.
