With its rugged coastlines, spectacular old growth native flora and spectacular wildlife encounters, the new Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail is one of the must-do walking destinations in Australia. Discover at every step a world class trail to the most remote coastlines in South Australia. Settle each day in luxury cabins as you enjoy delicious meals in a convivial affair where experiences of the day are celebrated.
Departing Adelaide, uncover the third largest of Australia’s islands, Kangaroo Island, and journey on moderate graded walks immersing through botanically unique areas in all of South Australia before reaching the rugged, remote and spectacular coastline of the Southern Ocean. The Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail suffered significant damages in the devastating bushfires in Summer 2019-2020. In the first steps of recovery, witness the landscape ‘unmasked’ and experience the beauty of regenerating plants, easier wildlife spotting and vistas that pre-fire vegetation never allowed.
Conquering 60kms in 5 days, revel in fragrant eucalyptus forests, be awed by pristine beaches, be captivated by jaw dropping coastlines and marvel at old growth forests that make this place one of Australia’s most awe-inspiring places. Experience unforgettable wildlife encounters with some of the island’s most unique wildlife including echidnas, kangaroos, goannas and if you’re lucky the majestic seasonal southern right whales. Witness the ever-changing landscapes traversing ancient sand dunes, impressive geological wonders, cinematic views that inspire both awe and contemplation along the iconic trails of Snake Lagoon, Remarkable Rocks, Hanson Bay and Kelly Hill Caves.
