Heysen Trail Part II :: Cobbler Hill Campsite to Tunkalilla Campsite – Deep Creek Conservation Park

This is the second leg of the Heysen Trail (starting from the southern most point). This leg stretches from Cobbler Hill Campsite to Tunkalilla campsite. I walked a bout a km further to the Tunkalilla Lookout and then up Tankalilla road where I was picked up by my wonderful supporter, also known as my wife Aki.

This leg is tough! You go down 5 or 6 valleys and come straight back up – sometimes literally straight up the side of a mountain. The path is well worn and the signs are easy to find and follow. However, for the first 2 hours I was all alone and only saw the backs of some other hikers as they turned off the path going towards the beach near Eagle Hole Campsite.

The trail follows a creek (now I know why it’s called Deep Creek) for parts – and past a great waterfall, winds through forest and scrublands and showcases a variety of flowers – blossoming in July. There’re plenty of animals – I even came across an echidna who seemed happy to be photographed. A multitude of birds fly around and there are plenty of kangaroos hoping about – or may be I kept seeing the same one bounding in front of me and then sitting down to rest only to be rediscovered and run away againnature South Australia photography by wedding photographer Joel C (1) nature South Australia photography by wedding photographer Joel C (2) nature South Australia photography by wedding photographer Joel C (3) nature South Australia photography by wedding photographer Joel C (4) nature South Australia photography by wedding photographer Joel C (5) nature South Australia photography by wedding photographer Joel C (6) nature South Australia photography by wedding photographer Joel C (7)

The rock picture is great, that might do well as a canvas on the right wall. Love the leaf picture, such a great idea. I might borrow it 🙂
