Overland Corner Walking Trail

The trail was developed by the students of Glossop High School and generous sponsorship of SA Water Berri Barmera Local Action Planning Committee and the Berri and Barmera Council have also assisted.

Beginning at the heritage-listed Overland Corner Hotel there are three walks that wind there way through the 300ha nature reserve, managed by the National Trust of South Australia. You can see natural and man-made changes which have taken place over millions of year. The walks provide geological, European and Indigenous historic background of the area, including an ochre quarry and canoe tree on its route.
