Tapanappa to Balquidder
A picturesque section highlighting the diversity of the Heysen Trail. Photo opportunities abound, and you might even spot a whale.

This walk starts with spectacular views to Tunkalilla Beach followed by a picturesque walk through dense bushland before a steep descent to Boat Harbor Beach. The very testing 4km walk along Tunkalilla Beach is followed by a very steep climb up to Balquidder which makes it a unique and very memorable section of the Heysen Trail.
