Temporary trail closure near Calabrinda Creek
A section of the Heysen Trail near the Calabrinda Creek Campsite, will be closed to walkers for a few hours on Saturday June 30th 2018. Calabrinda Creek campsite is located between Buckaringa Gorge and Hawker in the Flinders Ranges.
The purpose of the closure is to protect public safety during the running of the Auto One Port Augusta Rally of the Ranges. The rally will be run over many closed sections of road.
We have been advised by the rally organisers that walkers will not be able to access a section of the trail between 11am to 3 pm on June 30.
Location of the trail closure
The rally is a competitive event, so the exact route will not be released prior to the day. However we know that the section of the Heysen Trail that will be closed will be along Barnes Road and may include the Calabrinda Creek Campsite.
This section is found on:
- Heysen Trail Northern Guide Maps 4.8 & 4.9 and
- Heysen Trail Sheetmap 7C.
As a guide, the trail closure may extend from the western end of Barnes Road, Grid Reference 354 533, to Grid Reference 430 565, which is the point that the trail leaves Barnes Road and heads in a northerly direction.
Rally organisers have advised us that all gates and roads in the vicinity will be patrolled to alert the public and walkers..
