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 Walking Trail
This trail follows the ravine valley to the coast, passing along the creek bank and high above the valley floor, providing spectacular views. The French explorer, Nicolas Baudin, observed the Kangaroo Island Emu here in 1802, mistakenly identifying them as Cassowary. Tragically, the Kangaroo Island Emu became extinct at least ten years before the first official settlement in 1836.
The hike begins on the Ravine des Casoars Road, 7 km south of the Playford Highway, near Cape Borda Lightstation.
