Walk Selector

Use this Walk Selector tool to find a section of the Heysen Trail to walk.

There is a page for each of the 61 ‘End to End’ day walk sections, commencing (for northbound walkers) with the Cape Jervis to Cobbler Hill walk and culminating with the final stile at the Parachilna Gorge Trailhead.

You can narrow the displayed sections by refining your choices. As an example, you can reorder the sections to head south from Parachilna or select walks in a particular region.

Each Walk Selector page now includes the following information, where applicable:

  • Re-routes – all current re-routes (permanent and temporary) are listed for each of the 61 ‘day walk’ sections.
    Before before setting out on any walk, you should check the relevant Walk page to make sure you are aware of any recent trail changes.
  • Vehicle access to End to End points – there are a limited number of ‘End to End’ start and finishing points that do not have close access to a public road.
    In those cases, the Walk Selector pages now include an advisory note to independent/through walkers wishing to get vehicle access to End to End points.
