Section 40: Wirrabara Forest to Block 9 Road

Wirrabara Forest views - Heysen Trail through Wirrabara Forest to Reopen

Two small sections of the trail remain re-routed after the Bangor fires of Jan/Feb 2014 - check the re-routes page on this website.

This section provides a very diverse range of scenery, beginning with the dense natural scrub, ridgelines and spectacular vistas of the Telowie Gorge Conservation Park, then descending to a narrow single file track along a very pretty creek line, before emerging into walk alongside pine forests.
