Willunga Basin Trail

Sat 23 Jul 2022

Walk name/location
Willunga Basin Trail
Walk grade
Willunga Basin Trail End-to-End
Description

The Willunga Basin Trail winds its way around and across the Willunga Basin for 130km: taking walkers through a diverse landscape of bushland, forests, vineyards, almond groves, parks and beaches. It links the townships of McLaren Vale, McLaren Flat, Kangarilla, and Willunga to the suburbs of Aldinga, Port Willunga, Maslin Beach, Moana and Seaford. It has been created and developed by volunteers. The Friends program covers the loop over 6 walks.

WALK 5: Today the 21km walk leaves from Onkaparinga National Park, winding its way through beautiful Hardy’s Scrub, then travels some road reserves with a swoop across the interesting Gemtree Winery wetlands before a few quiet back roads take us into Willunga. Terrain is relatively flat with an occasional undulation.

Bring sufficient water, morning tea and lunch.

Please be aware of FOHT weather policies regarding cancellation of walks and adherence to Covid requirements.

THIS WALK WILL USE A BUS so participants should use hand sanitiser and wear a face mask throughout the bus trip.  Note that to participate in this walk you need to pay for the bus whether you’re using it or not.

BIOSECURITY MEASURES – Please ensure you thoroughly clean your footwear, clothing, walking poles and other equipment before and after each walk to remove all seeds, dirt and other debris. Removed seeds should be bagged and disposed in a ‘to landfill’ garbage bin.
