Section 53: Calabrinda Creek to Jarvis Hill

August 2020, section numbers altered:

  1. Sections previously numbered 51 to 55 have been renumbered to accomodate what was previously Section 50, from Eyre Depot to Buckaringa, to be split into two smaller more manageable sections: Section 50 Eyre Depot to Warren Gorge, and Section 51 Warren Gorge to Buckaringa. So what was Section 51 is now Section 52, and what was 52 now 53, and what was 53 now 54, and what was 54 now 55.
  2. Sections previously numbered 55 and 56 have been combined into Section 56, from Mt Little Station to Moralana Scenic Drive.

This is a long but fairly fast walk, initially along vehicle tracks, then over open grazing land along the face of Yappala Range and past the historic Mt Elm school site to Jarvis Hill carpark.
