Newikie Creek to Dares Hill Summit Rd And Hallett to EE George Quarry
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.

SATURDAY 22nd June

This section passes through Caroona Creek Conservation 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(an ideal location for a group photo).

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

SUNDAY 23rd June

A gently undulating walk largely along rural back roads and road reserves through the surrounding farmlands.
A pleasant and unique walk.

Dinner on Saturday evening will be at the Burra Hotel from 6.30pm.This will be a celebratory dinner for completing half the trail so lets all share the moment and toast the accomplishment.

The theme for the evening will be "Half & Half" so be imaginative.
