On this walk we will be visiting the Black Hill conservation park for a beautiful twilight hike and sunset. 

We will cover a number of the tracks in the park, heading up the Ambers Gully and Yurrebilla Trails passing through rocky gullies and mixed open forests dominated by stringybark, pink gum, blue gum, red gum and manna gum that provide habitat for an abundance of bird life, western grey kangaroos and koalas. Be on the look out for the blue wrens, southern boobook owls, black-faced cuckoo-shrikes and the occasional falcon that will hunt along the ridgelines of the park. 

Once at the top we will take a break to enjoy a snack before heading back down via the Main Ridge track to enjoy a hot drink and sweet treat to finish our evening

There is easy parking and a toilet nearby the starting point if you need to change prior to walking.

This is a moderate hike with some steep sections so moderate fitness is required but we will travel at a pace that will suit everyone attending on the night. 

 

*The area is part of the traditional lands of the Kaurna (‘Gar-na) people. They used the land for hunting and gathering and obtaining wood for fire and shelter during their seasonal relocation from the coast. One of the group’s most important tools was fire, this was particularly useful in fire management practices which encouraged vegetation regrowth. The seasonal use of Black Hill would have have allowed game populations to recover, maintaining a relatively steady food supply.

This tour by it's very nature is not designed for the 5 Star Traveller. It is for the girl who has an 'adventurous spirit' and is looking for a unique and rewarding 'experience' (Once in a Lifetime)! You should be able to adopt a "Go With The Flow" attitude, after-all we are in a foreign country and things don't always go to plan...this will help you chill out and therefore get the best out of your holiday.

You will also need to be mobile without assistance - some of the sights require you to be on your feet, navigating steps and uneven surfaces at times. We also have a couple of walks as part of this tour - these walks can be achieved by anyone with a general level of fitness, but again mobility is the key, as with all of our tours.

As of the 19th September 2019 Unfortunately PayPal have changed their policy to now retain fees even when we issue a refund. Due to this change both partial and full refunds will now be less the full fee charged by PayPal at the time of booking

No refund is available after departure of a tour has commenced.

Well organized, informative walk. Amazing vegetation along the Tanglewood track with beautiful natives and lots of bird life. It's a lot less busy track

The coastal walk was busy even though it was a cloudy day but we still had beautiful views over the coastline. At the end of the walk we had a quick dip to cool off. The currents were strong but the local life savers kept a keen eye on us. It was a really enjoyable walk and fun day.
