Dutchmans Stern to Eyre Depot; Quorn to Dutchmans Stern
On Saturday...Dutchmans Stern to Eyre Depot...
This is a deceptively tough walk with a bit of everything - undulating firetracks with spectacular views, a rocky gorge and a gibber strewn floodplain.

On Sunday ... Quorn to Dutchmans Stern...
This section of the trail passes the outskirts of Quorn before climbing gradually towards The Dutchmans Stern. Taking a detour off of the Heysen Trail to walk the 6 km Dutchmans Stern loop will provide a memorable highlight.

NOTE - If you wish to walk on only one day, please contact the FOHT office to register for that days walk. The online registering system will only allow you to register for both days.
