Coastal Walking from North Haven to Goolwa
By Gavin Campbell
Finally we have completed it with our final day’s walk into the car park at Cape Jervis.

I remember viewing the reptile exhibit of the Detroit Zoo shortly before coming to Australia. Essential ‘snake facts’ reminded me that the greatest population and variety of poisonous snakes on earth could be found in Australia. OK...let’s rethink this plan. Sure, we have bears and mountain lions around the place, but I’ve managed to live a relatively active outdoor life for 35 years without so much as a claw mark.

Fifty Years Before The Heysen Trail
By John Prescott
Fifty years ago this May, three of us walked along the south coast of Fleurieu Peninsula between the old Talisker mine and Victor Harbour.

It may also stimulate nostalgia among those old enough to remember.
