You will walk along stunning bush trails and through forest reserves in Kaurna Country.

Full Moon Hikes require a torch as it will be dark even under a full moon. They’re a great way to explore Adelaide’s bush trails at night. It’s a completely different experience. Also, the routes we walk are different to our regular day time walks. The trails we use are lesser known.

The Wednesday night, on or closest to the full moon is when we hike. As there is just the one hike each month, spots fill up fast.

All our full moon hikes are designed for great views of the moon. Destinations are always changing and the walking time is generally 2.5 hours. They’re rated moderate-hard due to night conditions.

For your peace of mind, all walks are guided by 2 experienced Big Heart Adventures Leaders who are certified in remote area first aid. All leaders carry a group first-aid kit, emergency communications device, emergency documentation and equipment.

De-stress on these howling adventures

The following items are required:

  • Water (1-2 Ltrs)
  • Snacks
  • Wet weather gear dependant on forecast
  • Blister kit/personal medication
