Hiltaba Walking Circuits is a 10km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Gawler Ranges South Australia. The hike should take approximately 5hrs to complete.


On the Eyre Peninsula the Nature Foundation’s Hiltaba Station offers two walking trails:

The 780sq km sanctuary borders the Gawler Ranges. Magnificent granite hills overlooking plains of diverse grass and woodlands are the landscapes that make up Hiltaba nature reserve. Hiltaba is a crucial link in the East Meets West NatureLinks Corridor. It carries a diverse range of habitats, from Acacia shrublands and Casuarina woodlands to Mallee forest and tussock grasslands, making it ideal country for over forty state?listed species and nine species listed by the Commonwealth for their conservation significance. For bird watchers, Hiltaba is a reserve worth making the trip for.
