The free BAROSSA COUNTRY WALKS App contains maps and descriptive notes for bush and country walks. The walks were established by the RGSSA members and members of the Walking Trails Support Group, based on those described in the Society's guidebook 'Exploring the Barossa'.

Each walk is straightforward for the average person and can be accomplished within a day. From the Barossa Goldfields in the west to Mt Pleasant in the east, the diversity of the walks highlights both the natural and the cultural features in this region, and most offer magnificent views. Several locations, such as Sandy Creek Conservation Park and Altona CSR Landcare Reserve, are well-known as bird-watching hotspots. Other destinations, such as the Goldfields, offer insight into the area’s mining history.

The information for each walk includes an introduction describing the highlights, distance, grade and access to the trail. There is a topographical map as well as an interactive GPS track map that displays a blue dot indicating the walker’s location. If enabled, the App will alert the walker with an audible text message when entering GPS range of a point of interest, such as a viewpoint, a site of cultural or historical interest, a geosite, or an area of noteworthy flora or fauna. The notes also have links to Flora, Fauna and Geology Notes for those interested in delving deeper.
