The Heysen Trail through the Caroona Creek Conservation Park will be closed from 6.00 am Tuesday 4th June to 6.00 pm on Friday 7th June, 2019. We advise walkers to avoid the area during this period.
Parks SA has advised us that the purpose of the closure of the entire conservation park is to protect public safety during an Aerial feral animal control program.
The Caroona Creek Conservation Park is located approximately 40 kms north of Burra between Newikie Creek and the Dares Hill Summit Road.
Other park closures
Other parks affected by the closure are:
- Red Banks Conservation Park
- Mimbara Banks Conservation Park
- Hopkins Creek Conservation Park
If you have any enquiries about the control program or the park closures, please contact the Natural Resources Centre Northern and Yorke on (08) 8841 3400.
You can find further information on the Parks SA Alerts page.
The Friends of the Heysen Trail supports broad involvement in our walking program and offers various levels of walks to assist people to engage in walks with nature:
- TrailStarter grade walks 3-4 hours for those wishing to build skills and strength;
- Trailwalker grade walks 5-7 hours over more varied terrain for those seeking challenges; and
- End-to-End programs taking up to 6 years to cover the 1200km Heysen
The Friends of the Heysen Trail recognises that some members may wish to be accompanied by their children on suitable walks. The Friends takes its responsibility for the safety of the group, walk leaders and family with children seriously and has had regard to the relevant legislation and guidelines related to Working with Children. Consequently, the Friends sets out the policy guide to clarify how the organisation will help ensure we meet those commitments.
The Policy Guideline was adopted by FoHT Council 15 May 2019.
