Pioneer Women’s Trail Walk

Join one of the National Trust of South Australia’s most popular annual events – a celebration of pioneering women and the trek they made from Hahndorf to the city to sell their produce with over 1,000 registered walkers.

Walk country roads, laneways and bush tracks through a delightful section of the Adelaide Hills, passing historic homes and deciduous trees in their autumn colours. The event was established in 2009 and has over 1,000 registered walkers through three council areas: City of Burnside, Adelaide Hills Council and Mount Barker Council.

You can begin your journey at Hahndorf (26km), Bridgewater (19km) or Stirling (12km) depending on your preference and abilities. Enjoy stunning city views on the way to Beaumont House where food vans, live music and a beautiful garden awaits you so you can unwind with your fellow walkers and newly-made friends.


The full walk starts from 7:30am from The Academy: 68 Main Street, Hahndorf and ends at Beaumont House. However, you can choose to join the event at any of the starting points located at Bridgewater and Stirling.

This year we have released the ‘PWT 2024’ polo shirt for wearing on the day and all year round. You have the option to purchase this when you purchase your walk and bus tickets, but make sure you get in early because shirts will only be on sale until 1 April 2024.
