Description

SATURDAY 19 JULY

Although primarily a long, flat, treeless walk, along dirt roads and road reserves, this section provides walkers with a perspective on the diversity of landscapes of the Trail. The final few kilometres provide pleasant views over the historic Burra township.

SUNDAY 20 JULY

This section of the Trail goes through historic Burra, passing the old Redruth Gaol and other reminders of a bygone era. The trail then takes walkers over the exposed hills of the North Mount Lofty Ranges.

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.

THEME FOR JULY – STRIPES

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.
