28 July 2018: The map below may not be available right now, please try again later.
We are experiencing severe rate limiting imposed by Google under their new map pricing arrangements. We will be implementing a solution to ensure as many people as possible can access the walking maps.
Under Google's new pricing structure, we will incur an annual fee in excess of AUD $5,000 for a service which was previously free. As a not-for-profit body largely lead by volunteers this is not an insignificant charge. You can support our work in promoting walking and walking trails with an membership from $22 per year.
About the Historical walk
Suitable for families and occasional walkers this self-guided trail circuits sealed and unsealed district roads of principally flat terrain through agricultural and pastoral country on the eastern fringe of the Barossa. Interpretive signs mounted on prominent epidote (green) rock indigenous to Keyneton, identify the culturally historic sites central to pioneering settlement and district development of the former North Rhine in the Mid Murray Council region.
Trail guides are publicly available at two local precincts:
- North Rhine St Peters Lutheran Church / Keyneton Cemetery, 801 Keyneton Road
- Keyneton Soldiers’ Memorial Hall / Independent Chapel, 903-905 Keyneton Road
The trail traverses the Mt Crawford – Stockwell segment of the Kidman Trail; the Springton – Truro segment of the Lavender Federation Trail; and incorporates the Keyneton Spur of the Lavender Federation Trail.
