Walk in the bold footsteps of the German pioneer women as they made the regular 35km trek from home in Hahndorf to market in Adelaide. Take in the spectacular Adelaide Hills scenery as you wind your way to Beaumont House for the annual Heritage Harvest festival. 

An unforgettable challenge and fitting tribute to the women who helped build South Australia.

This year marks 180 years since the establishment of Hahndorf, and it is the 10th year of this event.


Please note this event is run by the National Trust in South Australia. We are just gathering teams to both enjoy the walk and support a great event.
