10am Sunday April 17th, 2016
Webb Gap, Mid North
Over the last eighteen months the Lavender Federation Trail has been extended by 106 kilometres, taking the end point from Eudunda to Clare, and making the trail a total distance of 320 kilometres. It now crosses the Heysen Trail at Webb Gap where the two trails will share the section that transverses the Tothill Ranges from west to east. It’s a fitting meeting of trails, as Terry Lavender played in a key part in initiating the Lavender Federation Trail, and in developing the Heysen Trail.
Two major member organisations of Walking SA, South Australian Recreation Trails Inc. and the Friends of the Heysen Trail, are celebrating this unique crossing on Sunday April 17th, 2016. There will be local walks from 10.00am onwards and there will be an official opening ceremony at Webb Gap at 12 noon.
