Heysen Highlights. A companion guide to the Heysen Trail

AUD $39.95

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.

The trail passes through a cultural heritage spanning tens of thousands of years of occupation and nearly two centuries of colonial settlement. Even more unique is a geological landscape that spans the origin of animal life itself. All of this offers a wealth of discovery on every journey along the Heysen Trail and there is no shortage of highlights along the way.

In this companion guide The Heysen Trail is broken into 58 sections, each comfortably walked in one day. For each day there is an overview of what to expect and what to look out for – which helps walkers to understand the environment they are walking through – including its history, geological importance and natural environment. By explaining the context, including of the Aboriginal people, European explorers and settlers and the development of the trail, walkers can enrich their experience of the trail and its landscape.

The short chapters are intended to be a ‘pre-walk briefing’ and not intended as an ‘in-hand’ walking guide. This book excellently complements the official maps of the trail.

Author 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. As anyone who has had the joy of walking with Simon will known, there is so much to see and so much to discover along the Heysen Trail that there never will be a reason to stop.
