It’s just 6 days until we launch the Day on the Heysen Trail – the Warren Bonython Memorial Walk event.

We’re launching the event with an art installation this Sunday at Elder Park.

We’ll start taking walk registrations on Sunday, 14th April. The launch this Sunday will be at Elder Park, next to the Festival Centre in Adelaide city, at the Opening of the Walk Season event. The Opening is an event organised by Walking SA, and many bushwalking clubs, to promote the start of the hiking season, now that cooler weather is upon us. The Take a Walk Opening of the Walk Season event is from 10am to 3pm.

So come down to Elder Park to say hi and check out the art installation! It’s got a strong connection to Warren Bonython, who was renowned for wearing his bright yellow shorts.

Remember, from Sunday you can register for the section you want to walk on October 6th. Use our Walk Selector tool to review available sections. Several bushwalking clubs and schools have exclusively booked out some of the 60 sections. Registrations will close in late August.

The event registration fee is $20 per hiker, to cover logistical and insurance costs.

The walk is open to all.
