Wild South Coast Way on the Heysen Trail

Fleurieu Peninsula

The Wild South Coast Way on the Heysen Trail (WSCW) is a fully customisable, multi-day walking experience between Cape Jervis and Victor Harbor on the Fleurieu Peninsula, South Australia.

Walk the Wild South Coast Way your own way – any day, any direction, any section. From day visits with short loop walks to the full five-day four-night experience and everything in between, the WSCW allows walkers to choose their own adventure.

The walking experience offers some of the state’s most spectacular and awe inspiring coastal walking imaginable. The WSCW provides visitors a genuine sense of wilderness, featuring remote beaches, native bushland, rugged cliffs, First Nations’ history, breathtaking vistas, deep gullies and a rich diversity of native birds, bush and wildlife, in fact more species than anywhere else on the coast.

Each day of the walk delivers a new experience and challenge, starting with views across to Kangaroo Island before the full nature experience begins, encouraging the walker to ‘tune in’ to nature and ‘tune out’ of stress.

The trail connects the parks along our breathtaking southern coastline from Cape Jervis to Victor Harbor including Deep Creek National Park, Ballaparudda Creek Recreation Park and Newland Head Conservation Park.

If doing a multi-day walk, camp at one of the park campgrounds along the way: there are four walk-in only campgrounds and four drive-in campgrounds on or near the trail.
