Australian Ignatian Trail 2022 – 4 days/6 nights

Tuesday 11 October 2022 - Monday 17 October 2022

A Pilgrimage along The Australian IgnatianTrail in the footsteps of the first Jesuits in Australia.

4-day walking pilgrimage (6 nights) Clare Valley South Australia.
Tuesday 11 October – Monday 17 October 2022


This camino experience provides an opportunity to encounter Ignatian Spiritualty, discerning and listening to God’s presence in Nature. Step aside from everyday life, walk, reflect, experience nature day after day, time in silence, conversation and listening to God’s presence.

As a small group of pilgrims, you will walk part of the route in South Australia taken by the first Jesuits who arrived in 1848. This section of The Australian Ignatian Trail will begin at Kapunda. From there, the route proceeds along quiet country roads, the Rattler Trail and the Riesling Trail finishing at Sevenhill where the Jesuits established the first vineyard of Clare Valley in 1851.

Four consecutive days of walking covers 76km. A moderate level of walking fitness and overall good health is essential with daily distances between 15km and 22km.

The group will be supported by two experienced leaders from JISA’s Being with God in Nature ministry: Jan FitzPatrick and Michael Bertie.
