Bushwalking in South Australia
South Australia has the ideal climate and is the ideal location for bushwalking and walking for pleasure. With the Adelaide Hills only 20 minutes from town and scenic regions from the Flinders Ranges to Kangaroo Island, there’s a walk that suits just about every level of fitness. Before you set off visit the Scout Outdoor Centre and check out our extensive range of maps and books, packs, boots, walking poles, clothing and accessories.
The South Australian bushwalking season commences on the 15th of April every year and runs through to October. Contact any of these organisations for more information.

Mawson Bike Trail
The Mawson Trail is Australia's finest off road cycling trail. A 900 kilometre journey that takes you across the Adelaide hills, through rolling pastoral country and rambles alongside some of Australia's premier wine country. Most of the ride is done on quiet country lanes, back roads, forest trails and single track that leaves the world behind and creates a very special ambiance of its own as it unwinds its way into the more remote outback areas of the Flinders Ranges. www.mawsontrailbiketours.com.au
