What makes Walk My Way Barossa special?

  1. Start your day with a Big Barossa Brekkie at St Jakobi Lutheran Campus.
  2. Walk through rolling landscapes, rows of vineyards, and stunning autumn colours.
  3. Enjoy a barbie and break at beautiful St Hallett winery, with old friends and new!
  4. Reflect on the lives of early German settlers as you pass old cemetries. Will you see any names you recognise?
  5. Help refugee children in East Africa to go to school!


What does the day look like?

We’ve planned a 26km walking challenge from St Jakobi Lutheran Campus in Lyndoch to Redeemer Lutheran School in Nuriootpa.

After your Big Barossa Brekkie, and an opening ceremony, it's time to get walking!

You'll walk through beautiful countryside, townships, and past wineries. There'll be drink and toilet stops along the way.

After lunch at St Hallett winery, you'll continue on to Redeemer School in Nuriootpa for a finish line celebration!

There’ll be buses to take you to and from the start and finish, so you can leave your car at either end.

You can even bring a team of students and teachers from your school. What a great way to bring your school community together to help others! 


What if I can't get to the Barossa?

There are also Walks in Melbourne and on the Gold Coast (coming soon!)...

...or you can hold your own Walk!

If you want to do a Walk at your school, church or with friends, click here to find out how.

If you want to do a Walk by yourself, click here to find out how.


Can I run instead of walk?

Yes, runners are very welcome; however, be aware that there will not be a truck to carry packs from your start location to the finish.


Run?? I can hardly walk!

If you can't walk 26km, you can choose a shorter option from 19kms, 13kms or 10kms (see question below).

If you're not up to walking at all, there are so many other ways to participate. Sponsor a walker, sponsor a team or simply donate. Pray. Volunteer. Contact Kirra to find out how you can help!


How far should I walk?

This depends on your level of fitness.

You can do:

  • 19km from Trinity Lutheran Church, Rowland Flat
  • 13km from St Hallett Winery, Tanunda
  • 10kms from Faith Lutheran School, Tanunda

You can choose your Start Point when you register online.


I'd like to know more about the timing on the day and what I should bring.

Sure! The Walkers' Information will be available at the bottom of this page by December.


What time are the buses?

We will be offering a bus shuttle service between St Jakobi Lutheran Campus and Redeemer Lutheran School and the various starting points.

The bus schedule will be available in December.



Is there a bus to take me home from Redeemer Lutheran School at the end of the walk?

Sorry, no. If you have no one to collect you from Redeemer Lutheran School, then you can leave your car there in the morning and take the bus to the start location.


What happens if the weather is bad?

If high temperature is forecast (35 Celsius or above) or if other extreme weather conditions are forecast (lightning, gale force winds), the Walk will be cancelled. You'll be informed at the start locations, via email, SMS and Facebook.


What happens if I or a person in my group injures themselves?

There will be a First Aid officer on duty at different points along the trail and at the end. There is an emergency contact number provided. Please refer to the Walkers' Information below for what to do in an emergency.


I've got more questions...

Not a problem. Please have a look at:

  • the Walk My Way FAQs here
  • the Walkers' Information sheet below under Further Information (available in December)
  • when Kirra starts sending walker emails, you'll find them below under Further Information.
