Active RetireesTM | 11 WALk tHis WAy By Richard cann Waterfall Gully to Mount Lofty hike, Adelaide Hills, sA Length: 3.6km/2.5 hours (one way) Difficulty: Difficult W: www.environment.sa.gov.au/clelandwildlife Hiking enthusiasts have long relished the challenge of South Australia’s Heysen Trail, a long-distance walking track that stretches 1200km from the Fleurieu Peninsula in the south to the Flinders Ranges in the north. But for those looking for a quicker hiking fix, the 3.6km climb from Waterfall Gully to Mount Lofty crosses the Heysen Trail and follows Waterfall Creek. Hikers will pass six small falls and the fern gullies of Cleland Conservation Park, home to kangaroos, wallabies, emus and waterfowl, as well as the occasional Southern Brown Bandicoot. Despite the trail’s short length, it’s a challenging walk with a steep ascent to Mount Lofty Summit, the highest peak of the South Mount Lofty Ranges at 727 metres. Travellers may no longer have to surrender their duty free perfume and alcohol before boarding flights, following an announcement by Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Anthony Albanese. Advanced explosive detection equipment, due to be installed at Australia’s international airports in 2013, may see the end of current restrictions that require passengers to discard containers with more than 100ml of liquid or gel from their carry-on luggage. Albanese said the easing of restrictions would no doubt be widely welcomed. “It will make air travel easier and less stressful for passengers as well as free airport security staff to better focus on their core screening responsibilities without the distraction of having to confiscate items from people’s bags.” Liquids allowed to fly 13 OCTOBER 2011–6 MAY 2012 From the 1860s, Britain sent over 100,000 children to Commonwealth countries through child migration schemes.
