The Heysen Trail

Open navigation

The Heysen Trail is one of the world's great walking trails and the longest dedicated walking trail in Australia.

The 1,200 km trail starts at Cape Jervis and winds along the beaches and sea cliffs of the south coast before passing over rolling hills and rural landscapes of the Fleurieu Peninsula and Mt Lofty Ranges. Beyond Mt Bryan, the trail crosses over to the rugged peaks and valleys of the Flinders Ranges as it heads to Parachilna Gorge where it ends.

Most national park run camping and accommodation along the Heysen Trail needs to be pre-booked online.
