Keyneton Heritage Trail

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.
