Weirs Cove Hike is a 2.8km, grade 3 Return hike located in Flinders Chase National Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 50 mins to complete.
Hike to Weirs Cove to where fresh supplies were offloaded by boat for the lighthouse keepers and their families. Prior to 1907 the building materials for the lighthouse and the supplies were brought in by steamship, transferred to small boats and then landed at the base of the cliffs, before the goods were carried up the 90 metre steep cliff. In 1907 a jetty and flying fox were constructed to winch goods up the cliff. At the top of the cliffs a stone building with compartments for each family kept food cooler.
The hike begins from near the lighthouse at Cape du Couedic. There is a trailheads information board in the first carpark, near the lighthouse. The trailhead itself can be found by walking to the lighthouse and looking to the left (east). Walking out you might catch glimpses of Remarkable Rocks, and on your return you will see the Cape du Couedic lighthouse on the horizon.
