Mt Schank Walking Trail

Limestone Coast, SA

  • YEAR: 2014
  • STATE: South Australia
  • FOCUS AREAS: Growing Parks/SDG 15: Life on Land

Thanks to your support, when you visit South Australia’s Mount Schank State Heritage Area you can enjoy a new stone path to the volcano rim. Before this new track, the existing stairs did not meet Australian Standards and visitors often climbed beside the stairs instead, which led to erosion and a slipping hazard. Now, the 12,000 or so visitors to Mount Schank each year have a safer, easier walk to experience the incredible 360-degree views at the top.
