Stamford Hill Hike

About the Walking Trail

One of 40 Great Australian Short Walks, hike up Stamford Hill for magnificent views of Boston Bay, Port Lincoln and Lincoln National Park. Return the way you came or extend the hike on the Stamford Hill Loop Hike (2 hr loop, 5.7km).

At way up to the summit of Stamford Hill there are interpretive signs about the challenges Matthew Flinders encountered in finding water, and signs about the area’s natural history.

The trail is a reasonable challenge with some moderate inclines, but has a good trail surface.

There is a lookout point about 200m from the summit. At the summit there is a monument to Matthew Flinders.

Begin the hike from the car park, picnic area and beach at the base of Stamford Hill.
