See what’s planned: ‘walk-in’ campsites

New and upgraded ‘walk-in’ campsites are planned along the Wild South Coast Way on the Heysen Trail.

These unique sites and surrounding facilities are different to traditional campgrounds found in national parks as they have been specifically designed to meet the needs of multi-day walkers and can’t be accessed by cars.

They will include on-ground campsites or raised sleeping platforms, toilets, and undercover picnic areas with seating perfect for eating, cooking and washing up.

Existing sites at Eagle Waterhole and Balquhidder will be upgraded and new sites will be established at Newland Head and Tapanappa.

Here’s a sneak peek of the facilities you can expect to see at Balquhidder.
