Australian Ignatian Trail, Kapunda to Sevenhill
May 5 at 12:00 am - May 11 at 12:00 am
Sevenhill, South Australia 5435 Australia
In May 2020, a small group of pilgrims will walk part of the route in South Australia taken by the first Jesuits who arrived in Australia in 1848. This section of The Australian Ignatian Trail will begin at Kapunda. From there, the route proceeds along quiet country roads, the Rattler Trail and the Riesling Trail finishing at Sevenhill where the Jesuits established the first vineyard of Clare Valley in 1851. Four consecutive days of walking covers 76km.
This camino experience provides an opportunity to step aside from everyday life, spend reflective time walking, experience nature day after day and have time in silence and gentle conversation, listening to God’s presence in Nature.
The group will be supported by two experienced leaders.
A reasonable level of walking fitness and overall good health is essential with daily distances between 15km and 22km.
