Hawker Heritage Walk
Take a walk around Hawker. It is a town with a rich history and its own identity.
It has been a transport hub ever since its foundation in 1880, so it has grown up with the needs of passing travelers very much in mind, and it is now the service centre for the Central and Northern Flinders Ranges. So it looks northwards like no other town in South Australia and its heart lies with the north.
The people of Hawker take great pride in their town. We hope that you join the many travellers who over the years have enjoyed walking or driving around the town.
2019 saw Flinders Ranges Council install interpretive signage with over 30 points of interest. A brochure to guide you on your walk is available at Hawker Motors (Visitor Information Centre). The walk commences at the Pioneer Memorial next to the former Hawker District Council Office in Cradock Road.
