Description

SATURDAY 10 October

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 11 October

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 Farrell Flat Management Committee will cater for the meal at the Farrell Flat Hall. They are fundraising committee towards local events. The cost will be $30.00 per head with alternate meal drops of Beef or Pork and sweets sticky date pudding or apple crumble. Please help us support this small community by booking in for the meal. (I have eaten here twice and it has been lovely)

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.
