Distance: 31.7km (7 hours 56 minutes)

Starting this section near Dunns Point Road, walkers will head east along the beach, while cyclists will follow the Corny Point Road through to The Pines.

From The Pines walkers continue to head along the beach past Leven Beach Conservation Park and Burners Beach. Cyclists will follow the road before meeting with the walkers again near the Burners Beach shelter, just west of Point Souttar.  The shelter has seating and a small water tank attached.

From the Burners Beach Shelter, walkers and cyclists follow the shared trail to Point Turton.

On the way, the trail passes a spot known as 'The Drain'. This was a channel dug in 1900 by around 20 men to drain a big swamp area, and took around 50 weeks to complete.

Point Turton Caravan Park is found near the jetty, and is built in the old limestone quarry. Limestone extracted from the quarry between 1906 and 1919 was sent to Port Pirie, where it was used as flux at the smelters.

 

Walk the Yorke is a linear trail covering approximately 500kms, and all distances mentioned are one way unless otherwise indicated.
