Warren marked the ground that established the 1200km Heysen Trail walk from Cape Jervis, Fleurieu Peninsula to Parachilna Gorge in far north South Australia
I photographed Warren at his Adelaide home with his wife Bunty and remember well, the humility and generosity of the couple as they welcomed a relative stranger into their labyrinthine home – a shrine to the life of an adventurer.
The walls were adorned with fabulous outback art, the office, jam-packed with original sketch maps of his first forays into the South Australian outback in the late sixties. His list of academic achievements is as long as my arm.
