Talana walking trail

Walk to the top of Talana Hill

This trail should take you about two hours to walk. Please do not take “short cuts” – this causes erosion. The paths are clearly marked. The trail begins at the Diorama in the Cemetery at the museum. Please pay your entrance fee for the museum at reception and collect your self guided brochure for the trail before starting up the hill.

Please orientate yourself there; note the route and alternative sections.

As you follow in the footsteps of the British soldiers as they advanced up Talana hill there are 10 markers with historic information about what happened at that particular spot. Follow the route to the plateau and the memorial to the Dublin Fusiliers. You may wish to return from this point, if you do not wish to scramble up the last section to the top of the hill.
