Our journey north through the Flinders Ranges recommences with a difficult walk on Saturday and a comfortable walk on Sunday.

If no consult is available they should exclude themselves from activity until 3 days after symptoms have settled.

SATURDAY 22nd MAY
Starting from near the old Wirrabara Forest nursery the walk climbs back up to the ridgeline north of the bluff. From here the section provides a very diverse range of scenery, beginning with dense natural scrub, ridge lines and spectacular vistas of Telowie Gorge Con. Park and west towards the gulf prior to descending on a narrow track to a very pretty creek line before emerging into a walk alongside and through parts of the Forest and then a section of the Wirrabara Greenway where there are some testing short climbs.
SUNDAY 23rd MAY
The walk follows back roads and road reserves through undulating farmlands.
DINNER on Saturday night will be at the North Laura Hotel from 6.15pm. I reserved places for up to 45 diners.
