What is the route like?

From Victor Harbor to Goolwa, you’ll experience this coastal paradise made famous for its dramatic and distinctive coastline.

The 30km route travels along the Southern side of the stunning Fleurieu Peninsula. The trail is an even split of footpath/bush track and sand, so we highly recommend ankle gaiters and sand resistant shoes to keep out sand and debris.

You will start your challenge via the Victor Harbor Causeway towards Granite Island. The Causeway is a narrow pathway so please keep your 1.5m distance, be patient and mindful of other trekkers and the general public. Granite Island is the Fleurieu’s most recognised ecological attraction due to its unusual granite formations. Watch the crashing white waves, look out for the native flora and fauna, and take in the outstanding panoramic coastal views.

As you continue your journey along the Fleurieu, you will explore the small villages nestled in the folds of the hills and historic townships which hug its beautiful shores. There is a few spots where you can buy food and drink here. Don’t forget to sanitise before you slurp down that Calippo!

There are very few water and toilet stops along the this entire section. You must refill your water bladder EVERY TIME you see a water refill station (at the Luv Stop), even if you think you have plenty left. During training, these water points will not be available, so ensure you take extra water with you when training on the route. There are also plenty of access points for your support crew to meet you along the way.

Please always follow our pink markers and refer to your map.

The final section from Middleton to Goolwa South will be very dark for those finishing after sunset. Remember to bring your head torch (no, your iPhone torch is not enough!), even if you expect to finish in daylight. They are compulsory for all trekkers.

As you approach the last 2.5km, you’ll be able to spot Hindmarsh Island from across the Lower Murray River. With Hindmarsh Island bridge in your sights, you are only a hop, skip and jump to the Finish Line at Amelia Park. Woohoo! You did it!

Please note:  All Coastrek routes are subject to change. We attempt, at all times, to adhere to the advised route. As we are immersed in nature, however, there may sometimes be circumstances beyond our control (tides, fallen trees/branches, other safety aspects as advised by local councils) that require us to slightly alter the route. In any such cases these will be clearly marked and identified on event day.

If there is a government directive that disrupts your proposed Coastrek route on Event Day, you will get to choose your own route, based on your local area, COVID cluster conditions and suggestions from us, with all the support and assistance you need. We will give you some inspiration by suggesting routes we know and love in your area.
