Clare Valley Four Wheel Driving

Go off-road and see the Clare Valley up close

There are some great four wheel driving (4WD) tracks to explore.

Hills at Redbanks Clare Valley

Drive the Goyder Trail. See cereal crops and outback panoramas. The trail separates agricultural land from grazing land. Travel through valleys, over hills and see some spectacular views. Spot wildlife along the way and stop at nearby towns.

Goyder Trail

The trail is in two sections - the Northern Driving Trail and the Southern Driving Trail. Each takes about eight hours to drive. The northern trail passes Terowie, Whyte Yarcowie, Hallett and Mount Bryan.

The southern trail visits Booborowie, Farrell Flat, Hampden, Eudunda, Point Pass, Sutherlands and Robertson. Both trails begin and end in Market Square, Burra.

Dare’s Hill Circuit Tour

Try Dare’s Hill Circuit Tour. Drive to Hallett and follow the sign. The country here is always changing. Travel past crops and through undulating sheep country. See kangaroos hiding in mallee scrub and saltbush. Don’t forget your camera!

See where the town Mallet might have been. Pioneers surveyed the site but never built it. Drive the circuit in a couple of hours or spend a whole day exploring.

When admiring the views from Dare’s Hill Summit, you might think you’re in the Flinders Ranges.

Caroona Creek Conservation Park

The main four wheel drive track runs through the middle of the park, which is home to the beautiful Tourilie Gorge.

Drive up ridges, down hills and through creeks. There are wonderful views from the top of the range. See kangaroos, emus, snakes, lizards and birds. A campground has some basic shelter.

Travel advice

Have fun but stay safe. Be sure to follow some simple rules. Check road conditions before you start and watch out for animals - they usually ignore road rules.

Let someone know where you’re going because you won’t always get mobile phone reception. Leave gates as you find them, either open or shut. Pack food, water and suitable clothing.

Take your next expedition in the Clare Valley.
