Launch of the Purrumpa Trail

June 9 @ 6:00 pm - 6:15 pm ACST

ForestrySA is launching the new Purrumpa Trail in Mount Gawler Native Forest Reserve on Kaurna Native Title Country. ForestrySA have worked with Kaurna to name the trail the Purrumpa Trail which is a Kaurna word for flower (pronounced ‘Ba-rrum-ba’). Mount Gawler Native Forest Reserve contains nationally endangered species of orchid, so this name recognises both Kaurna people as the Traditional Custodians of the land, and the conservation significance of the Reserve. The Purrumpa Trail will take forest visitors, either on foot or their bike, through beautiful native woodlands on a 12.5km loop of narrow walking trails and fire tracks.
