Walking in the footsteops of the first Jesuits in Australia. The Australian Ignatian Trail brings a focus on the history of the first Jesuits in Australia at Sevenhill and compliments the Mary Mackillop-Woods Way (Portland to Penola) and other Australian pilgrimages/caminos.

This 7-day walking retreat provides an opportunity to step aside from everyday life, spend reflective time walking , have time in silence and gentle conversation, discerning and listening to God’s presence in nature.

In the company of two experienced team leaders, the group members have opportunities to reflect on and share their journey with one another.

This trail starts in Gawler with overnight accommodation in motels and caravan parks – stopping in Lyndoch, Tanunda, Kapunda, Tarlee, Riverton, Auburn and ending in Sevenhill. The route includes sections of the Heysen, Jack Bobridge, Rattler and Reisling trails that link the Barossa and Clare valleys.

A reasonable level of walking fitness and overall good health is essential with daily distances between 15km and 32km.
