Bushwalking in South Australia

South Australia has the ideal climate and is the ideal location for bushwalking and walking for pleasure. With the Adelaide Hills only 20 minutes from town and scenic regions from the Flinders Ranges to Kangaroo Island, there’s a walk that suits just about every level of fitness. Before you set off visit the Scout Outdoor Centre and check out our extensive range of maps and books, packs, boots, walking poles, clothing and accessories.

The South Australian bushwalking season commences on the 15th of April every year and runs through to October. Contact any of these organisations for more information.
