                                          HEYSEN TRAIL ACCOMMODATION GUIDE

                                             PARACHILNA GORGE TO CAPE JERVIS
Guide to the Trail

Before you go – Use the following checklist to assist your preparations:
                    • Tell someone responsible about your walk including the planned route and estimated time of arrival.
                       Don’t forget to tell them when you are back
                    • Travel in a small group, not alone
                    • Map, compass or Global Positioning System, whistle, matches or small torch
                    • First Aid Kit and insect repellent
                    • Drinking water and light energy food
                    • Permits and camping fees

Fire Bans – In general, the Heysen Trail is closed between December and April or on days of Total Fire Ban in the local fire ban
district. Check with the local authorities to get the latest up to date information.

Weather – The weather can vary greatly along different sections of the Trail as it passes through some of the most picturesque
areas of South Australia. Be prepared for changes in weather conditions by wearing appropriate clothing. Depending on the
weather forecasts you will need: a broad brimmed hat; sunscreen; sturdy footwear; a warm, waterproof jacket or other warm
clothing. Inclement weather can appear very fast in localised areas, so be prepared for the extremes.

Water – In many locations along the Heysen Trail rainwater tanks have been installed. However the availability of water at these
locations should not be taken for granted. Walkers should carry at least 2 litres per day and be prepared in case water supplies
are unavailable or undrinkable. Water taken from the rain water tanks along the Heysen trail, particularly at the Camp sites
should be boiled for at least 5 minutes before drinking or be treated with purification products. This is to prevent the risk of
stomach illness occurring.

Accommodation – There is numerous types of accommodation along the Trail, ranging from campsites, huts, hotels, bed and
breakfasts and shearers quarters. You should check before you leave if you need to book or pre-pay for accommodation.

                                                                                                                      Page 1 of 7

Some B & B’s require a deposit to be paid in advance. Some camp and hut sites need to be booked so as you can get a
permit or keys to stay there. Don’t rely on huts and always carry a tent. Be prepared to share a hut, leave it clean and tidy and
close all doors and windows when you vacate to deter vermin.

Camping – Consider camping in areas where you will cause the least impact, preferably in an existing campsite. Avoid digging
trenches around the tent and remove any rubbish when you leave. Always carry a fuel stove and use it frequently as campfires
scar the landscape. Observe low impact camping practices and don’t burn or bury rubbish.

Sanitation & Hygiene – Use facilities where provided. Where there are no toilet facilities, bury your waste at least 150 mm below
ground and 100 metres from any water source. Wash and clean up at least 50 metres away from water sources even when
using biodegradable products.

The walkers code
• Take all you rubbish home with you
• Leave gates as you find them
• Move quietly near stock and wildlife
• Observe fire bans
• Respect the privacy of others including farmers
• Help keep water sources pure
• Do not disturb native flowers or other vegetation
• Stay on the marked trail
• Use boot cleansing stations when provided – Help minimise the spread of Phytophthora cinnamomi
