Experience the Heysen Trail; one of the world's great walking trails and the longest in Australia. The 1,200 kilometre Heysen Trail extends from Cape Jervis on the south coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula to Parachilna Gorge in the Flinders Ranges.

Named after the famous landscape artist Sir Hans Heysen, the trail boasts some of the state's most spectacular landscapes; passing through national parks, state forests, vineyards, orchards, acclaimed tourist destinations and historic towns that offer accommodation.

Join the trail at any point along its journey and enjoy a section as a series of half-day walks or complete the entire trail as a 60 day hiking adventure. Inexperienced hikers should stick to the sections of the trail closer to Adelaide and the south coast. Further out from Adelaide the trail becomes more challenging; the terrain is harder and more isolated.

Some of the most stunning sections of the Heysen Trail include:
Fleurieu Peninsula: Deep Creek Conservation Park, Tapanappa to Boat Harbor.
Adelaide Hills: Mylor to Mount Lofty.
Barossa Valley: Mount Crawford to Tanunda.
Flinders Ranges: Wilpena Pound to Parachilna Gorge.

Heysen Trail Northern and Southern guidebooks and maps are available from leading bushwalking and map shops, the RAA and park offices.
