See More Of South Australia On New 325km Hiking Trail

Attention all hiking heroes! Pack a full rucksack for what must be SA’s longest but prettiest new walking trail, passing through wine country and the Flinders Ranges!


We love our walking trails here, as we might have mentioned a couple of times. So you don’t need to be told how pumped we were to hear about the completion of The Lavender Federation Trail, from Murray Bridge to Clare through some of SA’s most beautiful countryside.

Work began in 1997 on the trail as envisioned by Terry Lavender O.A. in whose memory the trail is named, and has just been completed after over two decades’ of efforts by an amazing group of volunteers.

The trail heads north from Murray along the southern edge of the Flinders until it reaches the Clare wine region, passing through many Insta-worthy landmarks and vistas along the way. From the beautiful Rocky Gully near Monarto Zoo (yes, we asked, you totally can see the animals from the trail!) and the trail-head at Murray Bridge…

…to the stunning rolling hills of the Eden Valley wine region…

…or just north of Inspiration Point near Eudunda, where the Point Pass will offer you some amazing summit vistas…

…and summits like Neagles Rock on the final leg into Clare.

The epic 325km trail takes about 15 days to complete the full length, but you can always walk whichever section suits your interests and abilities – you know we’ll be focusing on the sections that pass through wine country! South Australian Recreation Trails are celebrating the completion of the final section with an inaugural walk from Clare on the 5th of May. Check their website for more info.
