Wild South Coast Way On The Heysen Trail

Sun 23 to Fri 28 Oct 2022

Walk name/location
Wild South Coast Way On The Heysen Trail
Walk grade
Extended Walk
Description

Immerse yourself in 6 walks along the new Wild South Coast Way on the Heysen Trail (WCSW) between Cape Jervis and Victor Harbor.  Absorb rugged coastlines, dense native vegetation and expansive views in a small group.

An introduction on Sunday afternoon will include insight into Ngarrindjeri connection to Deep Creek and a short walk followed by sundowner drinks & nibbles. Experienced Walk Leaders will guide walks from Monday to Friday following the WSCW along this dynamic coastal stretch of Heysen Trail.

A solid level of fitness is necessary for walking over consecutive days on a Class 4/5 Trail:  these are challenging walks between 5-6 hours with some steep climbs and descents through gullies, rough, narrow and uneven tracks, occassional rock scrambling, creek crossings and along cliff edges.

As it is a linear trail, walkers will need to drive themselves to the end location for the walk, from where a bus will take them to the start of the walk. Registered walkers will be provided with daily meeting points.  A celebratory dinner in Victor Harbor will conclude the event.

Participants must register for the full walk program $320 – package includes walk fees, bus costs, sundowner drinks and final night dinner.  Note that “Golden Boots” does not apply for this event. Participants will need to book personal accommodation.
