Watervale to Mount Horrocks Short Walk
Immerse yourself in the scenic Watervale region, well known for its world-class Riesling. Walk through the historic township of Watervale into classic Clare Valley countryside of vineyards, cellar doors and rolling hills as you make your way to the Mount Horrocks lookout to enjoy the spectacular 360-degree views; some of the best in the region. This walk predominantly follows the Lavender Federation Trail and includes back roads which take you onto private property with a climb up to Mt Horrocks lookout. Unfortunately, you don’t climb Mount Horrocks itself but the view is no less spectacular from the top!
On your return stop by the beautifully renovated Watervale Hotel for an epicurean experience or a bite to eat and coffee at the Watervale General Store.
A section of the Short Walk (Mount Horrocks Lookout) is located on private property. This section is closed during the bushfire season. The Short Walk that follows Council roads is accessible all year round.
