Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail
One of Australia’s Great Walks
Kangaroo Island holds many secrets waiting to be discovered, with none more rewarding than the new Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail. The world class, 61 kilometre, 5 day walking experience opened in October 2016, and gives walkers access to some of the most rugged, remote and spectacular coastline in Australia.
The trail is located in the South West of Kangaroo Island and encompasses new and upgraded trails through Flinders Chase National Park, Kelly Hill Conservation Park and the Cape Bouguer Wilderness Protection Area. Along with encounters with some of the island's most unique wildlife, the trail provides access to the iconic attractions of Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch, Weirs Cove, Hanson Bay and Kelly Hill Caves.
Walk the full 5 days as an independent walker or join a 1 or 2 day section of the trail with SeaLink’s guided tours, featuring all the extras. The range of experiences means the beauty of the track is open for all to explore.
Towering cliffs of limestone and coagulated magma, storm-blasted coastal scrub and massive arcs of bone white beach; this is the wildness that awaits you on the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail. Few places in the world remain that provide such a setting for inner, deep listening and quiet, still awareness. Look around you and within - the opportunities for discovery are endless.
Uncover the nature and magic of the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail and walk through some of the most unique landscapes in South Australia. Bring your car for the drive to Cape Jervis, take the ferry to Kangaroo Island and head over to your accommodation at the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat.
The Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail is a new world class experience that covers 61 kilometres over 5 days of walking, with access to some of the most rugged, remote and spectacular coastlines in South Australia.
