Challenge Trip | Walk The Yorke


Join Big Heart Adventures as we soak in the landscape, wildlife and stunning natural features of the Yorke Peninsula.

We hike the southern tip of the ‘Walk The Yorke’ trail from Butlers Beach to Formby Bay.

We provide all private transfers on and off the trail each day to our nearby comfortable and quiet accommodation in Marion Bay. We provide a relaxed start and finish to our tour so that you begin the hike refreshed and leave feeling re- energised.

In this fully supported trek we walk with daypacks amongst bush trails, coastal cliff lines, and sandy white beaches. We visit Chinamans Hat Lookout, West Cape Lighthouse and Ethel Wreck and relax each night nearby enjoying delicious 2 course dinners.

Our Leaders will be with you the entire way to guide and assist and take care of all the detail, so you can relax and absorb the stunning surroundings.

Bring your comfortable walking boots and an adventurous spirit for this unique coastal trail.

Born in the heart of Australia I grew up with the desert as my backyard. With parents keen on the outdoors camping, hiking, climbing mountains and running around in the scrub was a common occurrence. I could never be kept inside and have had a passion for nature, fresh air and the wilderness from an early age.

It was an international school exchange to Cape Town, South Africa at 15 that then sparked the travel bug within me. Ever since I’ve trotted across the globe on many adventures. Tertiary education kept me in one spot for a while and I delighted in exploring rural South Australia and all the fabulous wildlife and bushwalking it has to offer. Jumping straight into outdoor education after graduating, was a given so I could share the beauty of S.A with others.

I have a passion of sharing the outdoors with everyone, including the next generation who should have the opportunity to see how the outdoors can have a positive impact on their lives. When I’m not discovering a new trail or hike I’m on the water in a kayak, on a rock wall, reading under a tree or practising yoga.
