Channel 9 in South Australia ran a fantastic tourism information program called Postcards. The dedicated team produced over 3,000 episodes in the 16 years it ran. They had a fantastic one hour episode to finish off on the 20th Nov 2012. It was a great celebration of some of thier work and at the same time – a very sad time for most South Australians. We wish Keith, Ron, Lisa and the Postcards team all the very best and say THANK YOU FROM S.A.!!!!
One of thier episodes featured the Lavender Federation Walking Trail, in 2006 and they have kindly allowed us to use it to promote our trail. We hope it also promotes the memory of the fantastic work they did for SA too.
Welcome to the Lavender Federation Walking Trail, a linear walking trail of 152 kilometres through diverse countryside traversing the eastern flanks of the Mt Lofty Ranges. The trail begins at Murray Bridge and takes a serpentine course past Truro at the northern gateway of the Barossa Valley.
The Lavender Federation Trail is named in honour of the late Terry Lavender OAM, the architect of the trail and the first chairman of South Australian Recreation Trails Incorporated (SARTI).
It is recommended that walkers refer to the detailed Lavender Federation Trail maps available from outdoor stores or local Visitor Information Centres.
The trail is in the Murraylands, Adelaide Hills and Barossa fire ban districts and is suitable for walking mainly between March and November or cooler days outside this period.
