Re-route of the Heysen Trail affecting Map 1.2, January 2012

View pdf map showing re-route

The Heysen Trail east of the Deep Creek Waterfall has been re-routed to avoid an eroded, steep section of the trail. Hiking east, the 2.1km re-route begins immediately south of the waterfall. Where the trail used to turn east and head up a steep hill, the trail now continues along the creek, contouring around the hill to rejoin the main trail approximately 1km to the east.

Re-route of the Heysen Trail affecting Map 1.3, January 2008

View pdf map showing re-route

The Heysen Trail has been re-routed in the descent to Boat Harbor Beach. The $90,000 upgrade aims to make the badly eroded section of the trail more environmentally sustainable and provide a more spectacular trek for walkers. The trail previously hugged the coastline and led its walkers up steep hills, causing significant erosion. The track was realigned to follow the land contours, rather than going up and down hills.

Stairs and Viewing Platform closed at Waitpinga Beach, July 2016

This is a temporary re-route

Steps at Waitpinga Beach following sand erosion

Some structural elements of the lower steps no longer reach the sand

The steps and viewing platform at Waitpinga Beach have been closed due to continued sand erosion.

Walkers should find alternative access directly across the sand dunes until the infrastructure has been renewed. DEWNR staff will continue to monitor the sand erosion and structure. We expect alternative arrangements will be put in place, including in the short term a marked route through the sand dunes.

Last August the lower steps were replaced with a dutch sand ladder, but this solution hasn’t worked and has since been removed. The entire structure has now been closed. Prior to approx 2012 there were two separate sets of stair structures, these were removed and replaced with a new single structure, which is the one now affected by erosion.

Re-route of the Heysen Trail affecting Map 4.5, July 2009

From July 2009 to early 2010 there will be major roadworks associated with the upgrading of the Sturt Highway near Greenock. A new bridge will be constructed along Roennfeldt Road over Greenock Creek. An additional carriageway will be built alongside the existing Sturt Highway which means Roennfeldt Road will be moved south of its current position. Another bridge for the highway will be constructed over Seppeltsfield Road.

Walkers are advised to use caution when walking along the road when machinery is operating. Take care when passing through the area and be sure plant and machinery operators or other workers are aware of your presence. Once the roadworks are complete the Heysen Trail will be rerouted along the Greenock Creek under the new Sturt Highway bridge, then along the northern side of the highway into Greenock.

A new camp site has been constructed at a trig between Hallett and Spalding. We anticipate water will be available for the 2013 hiking season.

This campsite replaces the former water source at Willalo Hall. It is 22.5km from Hallett and 26km from Spalding.

The camp site features a shelter with water tank and bench. It is in a windy and exposed location, so may not be suitable for all tents.
