OVERVIEW

Our 5 day group guided walking trip, is currently not being offered. In the meantime, our 7 day Kangaroo Island has scheduled departures for 2024. Click here to view.

Kangaroo Island is Australia’s third-largest island and is renowned for its forests, lagoons, white-sand beaches and sea cliffs pounded by thunderous swells. 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. The island has recently been through bush fires and the sprouting of new life through the forest is now quite prolific, and it is well worth taking the time to explore. Some of the walks have been affected by the fire, but with the regrowth, the forest is alive and well.

The walks make their way into Flinders Chase and past the surreal sculptures that are Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch. We walk over untrammelled beaches and kilometre upon kilometre of clifftop hiking. Other highlights are the 7000-strong colony of fur seals that take refuge in the stunning sands at Seal Bay, frolicking on rocky platforms.

We take care of the detail so you can relax and concentrate on what’s important, the walking and the up-close and fully immersive experience of this stunning island. The meals are expertly prepared and include 2-course dinners. With two outstanding guides looking after you, you can pace yourself because we can offer a choice of easier or harder walking options along the way.

DAY 1
ADELAIDE TO KANGAROO ISLAND

Depart from Adelaide at approximately 8:30 am (dependant on the ferry crossing) and travel to Cape Jervis for a walk in Deep Creek National Park.  This walk is a great introduction to the walk as populations of kangaroos, wallabies, possums, echidnas, koalas and Cape Barren geese all inhabit this park.

Walks: Easy / 10kms / 3 hrs
Meals: Lunch and 2-course dinner
Accommodation: Penneshaw Hotel

DAY 2

Today we hike another section of the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail. We will walk from Remarkable Rocks to Hansons Bay via Sanderson Bay. Remarkable Rocks is the result of a geological upheaval 500 million years ago, a timeless reminder of the scale of time. This allows us to explore the Rocks before the crowds and to miss a small rocky section that is similar to days 1 and 2.

DAY 4
CAPE DU COUEDIC, REMARKABLE ROCKS AND HANSONS BAY

There’s the opportunity to walk the little bit of track that was left out (to complete the track) from Hakea to Remarkable Rocks in the afternoon instead of exploring the caves. This portion was left out for a reason as it is repetitive and not that inspiring.

Walking: Easy to Moderate / 10 km / 6 hrs / easier option available
Meals: Cooked breakfast, walkers lunch and two-course dinner at the retreat
Accommodation: Private accommodation

DAY 5
BILLY GOAT FALLS, KANGAROO ISLAND TO ADELAIDE

We are based in private housing accommodation for the 3 nights whilst we are walking the West part of Kangaroo Island. This accommodation is nestled right on what is almost our own private beach. The Villas are just gorgeous as are the views. This is not a hotel, but works more like a lodge, thus the rooms are of different shapes and sizes. You won’t spend much time in them I assure you as we will keep you busy walking and enjoying the retreats beach and surroundings, not to mention the constant grazing. We will do our best to make sure everyone is experience is a magic one, but some rooms might have a better view or be bigger, we can’t help that.

FITNESS GUIDE

It’s well worth investing some time and effort preparing for your walking holiday. The graph shows the average daily distance, elevation and terrain difficulty for your hike. The dotted line indicates the average across all our walks, which will give you a feel for how challenging your walk is compared to all – and the recommended type, and amount, of preparation needed.  Of course, you can adapt this according to your existing fitness levels and lifestyle.

The graph and the information below can be used in conjunction with the fitness guide to help you prepare for your walking adventure. Across all walks, average daily distance is 16.8km, average daily elevation is 448m, average terrain difficulty is 5/10.

ngraph

DISTANCE - ABOVE AVERAGE

Distance training is a major consideration in your overall training program. As you progress, incorporate longer walks into your training plan.

Schedule one or two long walks each week, gradually increasing the distance until you can comfortably cover 17-25 km in a single day. Also include walks on consecutive days to help your body adapt to the demands of walking for multiple days in a row. Take every opportunity you can to walk. If you have a fitness watch or phone, you should try to reach >15,000 steps every day.

Ensure you can comfortably walk the average distance per day displayed in the graph, at least one month before you undertake your hike.

ELEVATION - BELOW AVERAGE

Elevation is not a major consideration in your overall training program. However, you should still incorporate some form of resistance training to increase your endurance.

TERRAIN

ROCKY TERRAIN

Whilst preparing for walking on rocky terrain, you must focus on the development of balance, strength, and agility.

Integrate targeted strength exercises, such as lunges, squats, and step-ups, to strengthen your leg muscles, with a particular emphasis on improving stability on uneven surfaces. Balancing exercises are essential. Undertake core strength activity, coupled with exercises such as planks and Russian twists to enhance balance. As you progress, include hikes on progressively rougher terrain if you can. Additionally, the appropriate footwear with good ankle support and tread for grip are essential. Stay mindful, watch your step, and use trekking poles for added stability.

FLAT TERRAIN

Whilst training for walking on flat and hard terrain, you should focus on building endurance and ensuring you can maintain a comfortable pace.

Start with regular walks on sidewalks, roads, or paved paths to get used to the surface. Maintain a proper posture and engage your core muscles to support your back, keeping a steady gait. Ensure that you have comfortable, supportive footwear with adequate cushioning. If endurance is important, consider incorporating low-impact cross-training activities like swimming or cycling into your routine.

GENERAL INFO

Please Note: The walks have been affected by fire but the regrowth makes the Wilderness Track look completely different. 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 wilderness trail as you’d expect is extremely well cared for and makes for excellent walking.

This trip operates with a pair of expert guides leading 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.

Pre and post-tour accommodation: There are many hotels in Adelaide. We pick up from and drop off at the Terrace Hotel, 208 South Terrace, Adelaide. The tour will start at approximately 8.30 am (dependent on the ferry crossing) at the Terrace Hotel. We arrive back in Adelaide at approximately 5.00 pm on the last day

For what to bring please refer to Gear Advice on our FAQ section.

WEATHER

We only depart at the best time to walk and for Kangaroo Island this is spring and autumn. See the Bureau of Meteorology’s information about temperatures and rainfall ahead of time to ensure suitable clothing.

INSURANCE

We require that you have adequate travel insurance against potential losses, damage or injury, including cancellation costs and loss of luggage.

For all trips that require international travel, you must have purchased travel insurance that also includes medical evacuation coverage.

We also charge a cancellation fee if you cancel your walking holiday after we have confirmed it to cover costs incurred from our suppliers and in the office.  See the FAQ section for more information.

INFORMATION PACK

For nearly 30 years we have taken pride in providing seamlessly organised walking holidays, but we know, even with that in mind, that you’ll have many more questions. You will receive a very detailed information pack and itinerary approximately 6 weeks out from departure outlining all the fine detail and much more.
