We celebrated the middle of winter by travelling up to the Flinders to walk the end of the Heysen Trail from Moralana Scenic Drive to Parachilna over 5 days.

After a night arrival and a couple 22km days with full packs, we were keen for a pack-free scramble up to some fantastic views from Mt Hayward. Many competitive games of Cabo, Monopoly cards and werewolves were played, friendships were formed and we became a speedy walking team.

For the final day, we dragged ourselves from the tents into the cold to watch sunrise from the hill and finished the walk with enough time to do a car shuffle and make it to Blinman Pub for pizza night.

Thanks to everyone who came for making it a great trip, I’d love to do another walk with any of you again.
