Cape du Couedic Hike (Kangaroo Island)
20 Mar, 2021
Easy
2.2km return
1 hr
As you drive from Kingscote to the far west of Kangaroo Island, the fire damage of 2019/20 becomes more and more apparent. 50% of the Island's habitat was destroyed; 96% of Flinders Chase National Park. It is hard to imagine what it once looked like.
Luckily, the draw cards of Bunker Hill, Cape du Couedic, Admirals Arch, Weirs Cove and the Remarkable Rocks are still accessible.
Best part of this walk was spending an endless amount of time watching the seals and pups playing in the sea and rock pools.

Yes, well, 'remarkable' is an apt description. What more can you say!

Robe Coastal Trail (South Australia)

Easy

Get the cobwebs out of your hair with a breezy morning walk along the coastline and around the harbour after a whole lot of lobster and fine wine last night. Was here in 2009, booked in for one night and stayed three. Love this place.
Mount Schank (South Australia)

What a great trek. Get to the rim and walk around and then down a unmaintained overgrown fern trail to the centre avoiding the snakes and overhanging branches. In the centre there is no sound, not even a whisper: surreal calm. Lay one more stone on the cairn and head back to the top.
Port Hughes Coastal Trail (South Australia)
4 Mar, 2021
Easy
6km return
2 hrs
A great evening stroll along a coastal track between Moonta Bay and Port Hughes; maybe it should be called 'jetty to jetty'.
Copper Rail Trail (South Australia)
3 Mar, 2021
Medium
9.6km one-way
2.75 hrs
This is one trail that I had read about before our visit to South Australia. In the hot weather, this was quite a push, but it was great to get out around the backblocks and read about its history. Locals have done a great job of restoring this trail to a high standard, so that everyone can enjoy it.
Discovery Walk (South Australia)

Easy

Within 24 hours of arriving in South Australia and we are at the top of the Mount Lofty enjoying the great views of Adelaide laid out below us. Yep, and we got to see a Bandicoot!
Mary Cairncross Reserve (Sunshine Coast)

Very Easy

Environmental Walkway (Queensland)
24 Oct, 2020
Easy
7km return
2 hrs
Been here many times fishing, but this was the first time having a look around for interesting walks. Cafes at both ends, made it all worthwhile and the local council has excelled itself with the amount of information it has provided on the flora and fauna.
Gold Mine (Conondale National Park)
18 Oct, 2020
Easy
5.5km return
2.75 hrs
After a great night's camping we are out early to finish off another couple of walks to round off the weekend. Plenty of birdlife around and the changing environment made this a very pleasant walk.
Strangler Cairn (Conondale National Park)
18 Oct, 2020
Easy
5.7km return
105 mins
Took the opportunity to carry on beyond the Gold Mine and include this walk. The Cairn is fascinating, just such a shame that there is no information board there to tell you about it.
Mount Allan (Conondale National Park)

Medium
10.4km return
4 hrs
Based ourselves at Camping Area 1 for the weekend to do as many of the walks in the area that time would allow. Prime objective on Saturday was to complete this great little walk to the fire tower. The fire tower is currently being refurbished, so had to circumnavigate the fencing to gain access.
Glastonbury Creek Loop (Brooyar State Forest)
4 Oct, 2020
Easy
2.2km return
1 hr
Staying at Glastonbury Creek Camping Area, this was an obvious Sunday morning stole before we packed up and headed back to civilisation. There are a few more walks out from the campsite, but we had to leave those for another visit.
Point Pure (Brooyar State Forest)
3 Oct, 2020
Very Easy
410m return
15 mins
This was less about the walk and more about the abseiling, although the view from the lookout is expansive.
Eagles Nest (Brooyar State Forest)
3 Oct, 2020
Very Easy
100m return
15 mins
The fun part is watching the intrepid abseilers disappear over the cliff edge to the bottom some 75m below on any one of the 26 points.
Scubby Creek Circuit (Mudlo National Park)
3 Oct, 2020
Easy
1.2km return
45 mins
We came here to walk to Pearson Lookout and found this delightful walk along, across and around Scrubby Creek.
Pearson Lookout (Mudlo National Park)
3 Oct, 2020
Hard
2.2km return
90 mins
Covered both the Scrubby Creek Circuit and the lookout in one. Made an attempt to carry on beyond the lookout hoping it might get to the top of Mount Mudlo, but the track has not been maintained and became denser and denser with foliage that inhibited progress.
