Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail - 5-Day Group-Guided
The Kangaroo Island Wilderness trail is on Australia’s third largest island and newest bucket list walk. Forests, lagoons, white-sand beaches and sea cliffs pounded by thunderous swells are just a small part of what makes this island unique. This island is a celebrated feral-free haven, moreover with a quarter of the island’s area being protected it is no wonder the native animals flourish. But if walkers are surprised at how easy it is to see marsupials and wildlife, they’re even more astonished by the scale and diversity of the place.
They see the diversity and scale close up by hiking the 61-kilometre Wilderness Trail that takes in Flinders Chase forests, the surreal sculptures that are Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch, untrammelled beaches and kilometre upon kilometre of cliff top hiking. They also walk Ravine des Casoars a true path less travelled walk.
Other highlights are Kelly Hill Caves and the 7000-strong colony of fur seals that take refuge in the stunning sands at Seal Bay, frolicking on rocky platforms.
With its’ dense forests, green wetlands and stunning stretches of coastal terrain, Kangaroo Island is a hiker’s dream, a true paradise for walkers and naturalists alike.
