Bus services for the Heysen Trail / Wild South Coast Way

We offer two types of minibus shuttle service for the southern Heysen Trail / Wild South Coast Way:

Why restrict yourself to the handful of locations serviced by metropolitan taxis and big buses? Our Heysen Trail coverage extends from the Cape Jervis trailhead to Dashwood Gully (near Meadows), using multiple locations that are spaced a half-day or full-day walk apart. Including the entire Wild South Coast Way.
Start and end your walk where and when you want....
Our accommodation coverage includes the Fleurieu Peninsula, Victor Harbor (and south coast), McLaren Vale, Glenelg, and Adelaide city.
See our Trail coverage map, or download our detailed Heysen Trail service brochure.

Our minibus carries 1 to 11 passengers per trip. All Heysen Trail & Wild South Coast Way trips are charged as Flat Rate – you pay the same price for 1 or 2 or 11 passengers. Walk with friends and share the cost.

Contact us to book your trip(s).


We also do other passenger transport services on the Fleurieu Peninsula.


The part of the Heysen Trail we service is entirely within the Mt Lofty Ranges fire district, and traverses a variety of public lands, parks, reserves, and private properties. Most Heysen Trail segments that cross private property are officially closed during our annual Fire Danger Season (normally early November to mid-April). Segments within parks may also be closed on Total Fire Ban days.
The Wild South Coast Way is open all year, except on any days of extreme or catastrophic fire danger.
For your own safety we will not transport you onto an officially closed segment of the Heysen Trail. Contact us if you're unsure about your proposed walking date and location.
