The tracks are dry, firm and well cared for on Kangaroo Island. Most of the walks are easy to moderate. The easy walks are great for first-timers; however, the experienced hikers won’t be disappointed as there is ample opportunity to walk challenging distances and explore some fascinating geological sites. The new Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail as you’d expect is extremely well cared for and makes for excellent walking. Some of the walks have been affected by the fire, but with the regrowth, the forest is alive and well.
This trip operates with a pair of expert guides that lead the way, providing the flexibility to walk at a pace that suits you and offering a choice of easier or harder walking options along the way. We also have a third guide/cook helping with the meals at the private houses. Some dietary requirements can not be catered for because of the remoteness, please speak to the office.

This trip is staged in a remote area and in some instances, some of the food is catered by our guides. Therefore it is not possible to cater to complex dietary requirements or can we cater to some preferences. Please speak to the office if you have any queries.
