Clare Valley Short Walks

Neagles Rock Short Walk

From heritage to nature to vineyard-covered landscapes, the Clare Valley Short Walks provides the perfect activity whilst enjoying the delights of the Clare Valley.

The Clare Valley’s diverse landscapes are shown off at their best with the newly created Clare Valley Short Walks. The region is mostly known for its great food and wine, but what it’s not so well known for is its many trails and great appeal to the more active traveller and families. From simple strolls to more serious slogs, the 6 walks range from 1 hour to 4 hours and take in parts of the well-known Heysen, Lavender Federation and Riesling Trails as well as the Spring Gully Conservation Park.

Perfect for a range of walkers from young families to the mobile senior, they provide a taste of the varied landscapes the region has to offer with many having a few places to eat and drink on the way.  

The Cascades Walk is a short moderate 1.3 km return walk and is the most popular bushwalk in Spring Gully Conservation Park.
The Clare to Sevenhill Short Walk is the most popular section of the Riesling Trail which runs 33 kilometres from Auburn to Barina.
Visit the historic Martindale Hall located within the Martindale Hall Conservation Park and then follow the trail along Martindale Road along the Lavender Federation Trail.
Pack a picnic and take the short adventurous climb to the Neagle’s Rock lookout point and take in the magnificent views of the Clare Valley.
Follow the Riverton to Rhynie Short Walk along the old Spalding railway line and section of the Rattler Trail through beautiful open countryside.
Walk through the historic township into the rural countryside as you make your way to the Mount Horrocks lookout to enjoy the spectacular 360-degree views.

This project was delivered by the Clare and Gilbert Valleys Council and funded from the Australian Government's Drought Communities Programme.
