Calling all long-distance walkers! New campgrounds have opened along the Heysen Trail

The Wild South Coast Way on the Heysen Trail is open to walk in its entirety now with Tapanappa Ridge lookout and picnic area set for completion in the coming months.

National Parks and Wildlife Service South Australia have just finished construction of its new campgrounds along the Wild South Coast Way on the 1,200km Heysen Trail!

Dedicated to the long-distance, multi-day walkers, National Parks and Wildlife have created four purpose-built campgrounds accessible by foot only.

The campgrounds have been named in Ngarrindjeri language – Kurri Ngawanthi (Creek Campground), Natunyuru Ngawanthi (Sand Dunes campground), Wuldi Krikin Ngawanthi (Eagle Waterhole) and Yapari Ngawanthi (Cliffs campground). A single campsite is suitable for two people and offers an intimate experience among nature as well as being able to gaze at rarely seen landscapes along the south coast.

The Wild South Coast Way on the Heysen Trail is open to walk in its entirety now, with Tapanappa Ridge lookout and picnic area set for completion in the coming months.

The best part of the new campgrounds is the incredible walking trail that will be so easily accessible from your campsite.

The Wild South Coast Way on the Heysen Trail (WSCW) is a fully customisable, multi-day walking experience between Cape Jervis and Victor Harbor on the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia.

You will be able to walk the Wild South Coast Way your own way – any day, any direction, any section. From day visits with short loop walks to the full five-day four-night experience and everything in between, the WSCW allows walkers to choose their own adventure.

The walking experience offers some of the state’s most spectacular and awe inspiring coastal walking imaginable. The WSCW provides visitors a genuine sense of wilderness, featuring remote beaches, native bushland, rugged cliffs, First Nations’ history, breathtaking vistas, deep gullies and a rich diversity of native birds, bush and wildlife, in fact more species than anywhere else on the coast.

Each day of the walk delivers a new experience and challenge, starting with views across Kangaroo Island before the full nature experience begins, encouraging the walker to ‘tune in’ to nature and ‘tune out’ of stress.

So why not check out your newfound sanctuary and enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
