The Southern Ocean Walk is an all-inclusive fully guided 4 day/3 night walk incorporating sections of the renowned Heysen Trail and features some of the most dramatic coastlines on offer in Australia.
Ever changing landscapes are a hallmark of the Southern Ocean Walk which showcases seven secluded beaches, the all-year waterfall at Deep Creek Conservation Park and sheer cliffs at Newland Head Conservation Park.
The walk is graded as moderate with sections that feature sandy shorelines and gentle slopes but also includes some steep climbs and descents in more rugged terrain. The total distance covered is approximately 49km with typical average daily distances of 12km over 6hr ensuring a comfortable pace with ample time for refreshments and photo opportunities.
Guests can expect to see a broad range of native animals at close range in their natural habitat, both land and marine based. Our knowledgeable guides interpret the flora and fauna seen along the way as well as the history associated with this region. The Southern Ocean Walk is a curated soft adventure that resonates strongly with guests seeking genuine nature based experiential travel.
One of the hallmarks of the Southern Ocean Walk is the care we take in sourcing produce from local growers. We believe that this greatly adds to the immersive experience and enables guests to gain a greater appreciation of the wider region that supports our walk. From cheese to chocolates, pork to pâté, and wine to water crackers the Fleurieu Peninsula is a treasure trove of small scale bespoke producers.
Add to this more than 100 cellar doors from two world class wine regions and you have a rich pantry of locally sourced ingredients from which to choose.
We source our ingredients from local providores to ensure this walk appeals as much to their taste buds as it does to their inner explorer.
One of the unique features of our walk is that we have a centrally located base located right in the heart of Deep Creek Conservation Park. This has two key benefits. Not only are daily transfers short but the exclusive location means the immersive experience continues even when guests are not on trail as they are surrounded by native wildlife and vegetation at the Deep Creek Homestead.
Staying at our comfortable homestead each night also means guests only unpack once. They can enjoy an invigorating foot bath and reflect on the day’s discoveries while our staff prepare dinner. The charm and secluded setting of our accommodation will have them settled into a blissful state of relaxation.
