Friends Office Closes for Holidays

Holiday Closure for the Friends Office

The Friends of the Heysen Trail office will close for the Christmas period at 2:30pm this Friday, December 14th 2018. Our volunteers have earned a good break.  If you need to contact the office (by email or telephone) over the holiday period, it is unlikely that we will respond to your enquiry until we reopen. So we recommend that you refer to our website for any information you may need.

There will be a Volunteers Information Day on Monday, 4th February 2019 with normal office procedures beginning on Tuesday, 5th February.

Online Shop Sales over Christmas

While the office is closed, our online shop will remain open for business. However, as many of our volunteers will be on holidays, it may take longer than normal to service orders. We will endeavour to dispatch shop orders within 5 business days.
If you want to shop for last minute Christmas purchases we undertake to dispatch any orders received by midday on Monday, December 17th, on that day.

The Heysen Trail is closed over the Fire Danger Season

Remember that the Heysen Trail is now closed for the Fire Danger Season. You can access more information about the trail closure here.

Register for Twilight walks

Although the office and the Heysen Trail are closed, don’t forget our Wednesday evening Twilight Walks. You can register for walks using our online Walks Calendar.

Merry Christmas!
The Office Volunteers wish all Friends members and supporters a Merry Christmas and a great New Year.

Get to Karka for the End of Year Book Bash – December 2nd 2018

Heysen Highlights hot off the press

The End of Year Bash is on again. Make sure you are at Karka Pavilion, Belair National Park for lunch and fun on Sunday December 2nd 2018. This year we have something special – we also are launching ‘Heysen Highlights’ – Simon Cameron’s companion guide to the Heysen Trail.

The Book – get it at the ‘one off’ Bash special price of $30 (rec retail $39.95)

The book has 264 pages with many colour photographs and will make an ideal gift and trail reference. To celebrate the launch, copies will be available for sale at the Bash, at the one day only special price of $30.

The Heysen Trail is a 1200 kilometre adventure hike which runs along the rugged spine of South Australia. From the Southern Ocean’s cliffs and beaches to the northern deserts. It is Australia’s most diverse trail, over varying terrain and filled with a multitude of stories.

In this companion guide The Heysen Trail is broken into 58 sections, each comfortably walked in one day. For each day there is a brief overview of what to expect and what to look out for.

Simon Cameron joined the Friends of the Heysen Trail in 2001, the same year that he started walking the Trail. He has never stopped walking it. There is so much to see and so much to discover there never will be a reason to stop.

Simon will be there to  personally sign any copies purchased on the day. Make sure you get your copy.

The Band – Raunchy Sugar

Raunchy Sugar are returning as ‘The Band’, so this year don’t miss out on a very special event. Get your End to End group or walking friends organised and be there.

Come along to Rock and Roll or maybe just relax amongst the lush green surroundings of Karka.
