Welcome to the Lavender Federation Trail, The Lavender Federation Trail (LFT) celebrates 100 years since the 1901 Federation of Australia and the memory of Terry Lavender OAM, whose vision established this trail from Murray Bridge to Clare.

It is a linear walking trail through diverse countryside traversing the eastern flanks of the Mt Lofty Ranges. It begins at Murray Bridge and traverses the Barossa, Goyder, Mid North and the Clare Valley regions to Clare.

The trail’s serpentine course takes it into the townships of Murray Bridge, Tungkillo, Dutton, Eudunda, Waterloo, Manoora, Mintaro, Watervale and Clare. Detailed Maps available at various locations: Loop trails are accessed from Tungkillo, Mount Pleasant, Springton, Eden Valley, Moculta and Point Pass, Watervale. Spur trails connect to Callington, Keyneton, Truro and Robertstown. The Sanderston Trail links the LFT at South Rhine via the Springton Loop Trail with Saunders Gorge. The Main trail is 325 kilometres with connecting trails providing an additional 96 km. The LFT intersects with the Kidman, Mawson, Heysen and Riesling Trails and links to trails within the Kinchina Conservation Park at Monarto. The trail network has been designed, constructed and maintained entirely by volunteers.
