The Pioneer Women's Trail Walk on 20 May 2018 from 8am to 4pm serves to remind us of the journey taken by the early German women settlers in Hahndorf. They walked all the way to Adelaide, leaving in the middle of the night for their journey, and carrying heavy baskets of their farm produce. The return journey was made the same day, back up the hill, carrying their money and scarce commodities such as sugar, candles, needles and thread. The fear of being attacked by bushrangers, ruffians and such like was never far away.

This event honours these women who helped build South Australia; women who made the 35km trek on foot to Adelaide to sell their wares.

Grab your tickets HERE and walk in the footsteps of these pioneer women who endured hardship to get their wares to the market. Tickets are - Walk: $20 per person; children under 16 free. Per Person Group of 5 $15. Children under 16 participating must be accompanied by an adult. Bus: an additional $10 per person

The walk commences at The Hahndorf Institute, meandering through beautiful scenery till it makes its descent to Beaumont House Gardens in Burnside. You can also join this event and start your walk at Bridgewater, Stirling and Eagle on the Hill. After the event, enjoy a special harvest celebration with live music, food, wine and a produce market. You can also lend a hand picking olives in the famous 150 year old Davenport Olive Grove.

If you have family and friends waiting to take you home, they can join you at the special harvest festival at Adult $10, Member $8 National Trust Members Child under 15 free.
