Today we visited Warren. It was a lovely Autumnal day with clear skies and light winds. I really like this walk as there are no 'too steep' sections, lots of different terrain and it is really well marked. You can find out more about Warren at our earlier blogs , , and . ... read more

Introduction It is with much pleasure that I share with you our visit to a great bush walk situated near Williamstown in SA called Warren Conservation Park. It is a 9km walk - up hill and down with fabulous views, interesting rocks and very serene bush land. It is part of the Heysen trail but this is a well-marked loop trail. You will need to have a reasonable level of fitness, although there are no horrendous steep sections, and if you are taking children they will need to be able to walk for up to four hours. There are many interesting rock formations in this park - many containing mica which reflects brightly in the sun - so remember to wear your sunnies on this walk.

The turn off is a sneaky number - a right hand turn on to Watts Gully road that is easy to miss - and you can park at the entrance to the park which is about 3 kms further down this road. The path takes in much of ... read more

The Warren Conservation park was brilliant. The park is just outside of Williamstown in South Australia. It was a well marked secluded trail that goes around a valley then to the top of a hill where a fire tower provides excellent views to the sea and to the north - brialliant. Then you descend into the gully and find some interesting rocks (like shark tooth) and an absolutely enormous spider!! I would recommend this walk to anyone - it was great.
