Hiking in South Australia
South Australia is home to a vast, dry land that has a rough and rugged, but pristine coastline stretching right across the south of the state, where you can find anything from soothing, remote day hikes to wild and tough multi-day trails.
Although South Australia is quite a flat and spread out region with the least amount of rainfall out of any state in Australia, there’s a mass of interesting mountain ranges, rocky terrain and jagged hills that are perfect for exploring by foot.
Visit the south-east of SA for cooler climate where you can walk around different cave systems, volcanoes and thick, eucalyptus forests, stay on the coastline for challenging, sandy coastal hikes or head north and hike past ancient rock formations and mountains that are covered in rich red dust.
Here are the hiking trails in South Australia that have been mentioned in the WAY&FARER blog.
