This group has evolved from the group that first explored and tested the route of the Willunga Basin Trail and has been very important in the development of the trail.

The group walks every Friday except for days of total fire ban or extreme weather. There is a short break over Christmas holiday time. Walks are mostly half day walks varying from an easy 7km stroll to moderate hikes of 10 to 13 kms with some longer hikes over challenging terrain.

Walks are mostly in the Willunga Basin, neighbouring areas, the Fleurieu and some further away. There are two stay-aways of 2-4 days each year. Group size varies from 12 to 25 walkers depending on the walk. Walks are led by more experienced members some of whom have had bush-walking leadership training. We welcome new walkers and  those who are occasional attendees and visitors to the area.

These walks are free to members with a first free walk to prospective members.
