Wandallah to Newikie Creek to Dares Hill Summit Rd
These are 2 wonderful testing and rewarding walks.

SATURDAY 25th MAY

This is a remote and very undulating section of the trail providing walkers their first introduction to the grazing lands beyond Goyders Line.Over the past few years the countryside in the area has been particularly dry.

SUNDAY 26th MAY

This section passes through Caroona Con. Park and Tourilie Gorge, which is one of the lesser known gems of the trail. Part of the walk through the gorge will be along the ruins of an old bullock track. Look out for the old retaining walls and the hand dug rock cutting.

It should be noted this is probably the most remote section of the trail south of the Flinders Ranges.

The Theme for the weekend is BACK TO SCHOOL; revive some long lost memories for a bit of FUN
NOTE - If you wish to walk on only one day, please contact the FOHT office (once bookings have opened) to register for that day’s walk. The online registration system will only allow you to register for both days.
