Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail - Self-GuidedPrice from $2395
Expect breathtaking coastal scenery, magnificent coastal forest and an abundance of wildlife. A quarter of the island, Australia’s third-biggest, is protected within national parks, making it a sanctuary for native animals, like platypus and Koalas. The 67km purpose-built walking track meanders its way through eucalypt and mallee forest via stunning stretches of coastal landscapes.
The tall limestone cliffs dominate the landscape, the same cliffs that played havoc with at least 60 ships that foundered themselves on these shores. There’s nothing between you and Antartica other than the massive Southern Ocean. Interestingly, the upwelling here provides a one of a kind haven for marine wildlife like whales, seals and dolphins so keep your eyes peeled.
