Twilight Hikes

We offer a variety of twilight hikes along stunning bush trails and through forest reserves in Kaurna Country. These walks are a great way to de-stress and get your nature boost mid-week.

Twilight hikes operate monthly and on a Wednesday night. As there is just the one hike each month, spots fill up fast.

You will explore Adelaide’s bush trails at sunset, for a completely different experience. Also, the routes we walk are different to our regular day time walks. The trails we use are lesser known.

All twilight hikes are designed for great views as the sun settles down over picturesque Adelaide. Destinations are always changing and the walking time is generally 2.5 hours. They’re rated moderate and do include some moderate inclines.

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.

The following items are required:

  • Headtorch or torch as we do return after sunset
  • Boots/comfortable walking shoes
  • Water (1-2 Ltrs)
  • Wet weather gear dependant on forecast
  • Blister kit/personal medication
  • Warm clothing for after the walk (jumper/jacket)
  • Hiking poles (optional)

We walk for not just physical but also positive mental health outcomes. Our walks are all about fun, fitness and friendship – not a personal training session. If we can’t walk and talk at the same time we are walking too fast. And we never leave anyone behind.

Twilight Hikes – minimum age requirement is 15 years old if accompanied by a supervising adult.
Family Twilight Hikes – there is no age limit but child suitability must be determined by the accompanying supervising adult.
