OVERVIEW

DUE TO THE 2020 BUSHFIRES AND OUR ACCOMMODATIONS SADLY BEING BURNT DOWN THIS TRIP WILL BE UNAVAILABLE UNTIL 2023 

The spectacular coastal scenery and coastal forest, work in concert with Kangaroo Island’s abundance of wildlife, to create an amazing platform for walking. Kangaroo Island is Australia’s third-largest and a third of it is protected within a national park. This unique island sanctuary has become a haven for native animals, particularly threatened and protected species. The track traverses a diverse range of landscapes. Eucalypt and mallee forest and striking stretches of coastal landscape dominate the 67km purpose-built walk.

The tall limestone cliffs, reminiscent of the Otways and the massive Southern Ocean swells, contributed to at least 60 ships being wrecked on these shores. It’s also a haven for marine wildlife like whales, even the odd killer whale, seals and dolphins, so be on the lookout.

HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Kelly Hill Caves, Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch, Rocky River and seal colonies
  • All meals on the walk
  • Stunning views over the ocean at remote Hansons Bay and beach
  • Transfers from Kingscote Airport or Penneshaw ferry terminal
  • Fully inclusive pack free walking holiday
  • Hike the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail (minus one very small section of low mallee forest)

DAY 1
VISITORS CENTRE TO SNAKE LAGOON

Catch the 9.30 flight from Adelaide to Kingscote airport arriving on Kangaroo Island around 10 am.  We will transfer you to your first accommodation where you will pick up lunch and have a safety overview. Today you walk from the visitor’s centre to Rocky River and Snake lagoon through gorgeous eucalypt forest, via swampland and the Platypus pools. Stop for a moment at the rapids and rock pools along the way, and keep an eye out for the stacks of wildlife coming in to take a drink. Expect to see Cape Baron Geese, Wallabies and Kangaroos plus a whole lot more.

Walking: Easy to moderate/ 12km / 3-4 hrs
Meals: Lunch and two-course dinner
Accommodation: Excellent private housing accommodation

DAY 2
SNAKE LAGOON TO ADMIRALS ARCH

From Rocky River, it’s a gentle walk down the river to the Southern Ocean. There’s nothing between here and the Southern Ocean; the wilder the weather, the bigger the show. The views of the massive swells crashing against the cliffs paired with the peacefulness of this splendid remote landscape set the tone for the rest of the walk. From May to September there’s a chance you’ll see whales. The walk follows the coast both on the cliff tops and on the beach eventually heading inland via Hakea Campground to the other side of Cape de Couedic Peninsula. The walk via Weirs Cove and Cape de Couedic Lighthouse to Admirals Arch is one of the real highlights of the trail.

Walking: Moderate with some challenging sections of rocky track / 18.5km / 5.5 – 6.5 hrs / 14km option is available
Meals: Breakfast, walkers lunch pack and 2-course dinner
Accommodation:Excellent private housing accommodation

DAY 3
REMARKABLE ROCKS TO HANSON BAY

Today’s walk starts at Remarkable Rocks, arriving early well before all the crowds is a real pleasure. For your information, we miss one small 6 km section of the walk, through mallee forest from Hakea Campground to Remarkable Rocks. The granite boulders sculptured by the forces of nature have an artistic, almost surrealist feel to them. This next section is one of the best, if not the best. From Sanderson Bay, it’s back to the coast past Cape Younghusband. The coastal views are stupendous before heading off through cooler mallee and tea tree forest. Hike to spectacular Hanson Bay and your accommodation. Hanson Bay is one of the most beautiful places on the island. There’s a very safe bay or an estuary to take a swim in, and there are additional beach walks on your doorstep if you feel so inclined. Depending on the time of year, there is likely to be hardly anyone here, so in the evening it’ll feel like having your own private beach.

Walking: Moderate / 18.5km / 5.5 – 6.5hrs
Meals: Breakfast, walkers lunch pack and 2-course dinner
Accommodation: Excellent private housing accommodation

DAY 4
HANSON BAY TO KELLY HILL CAVES

Walk from your accommodation one of 2 ways. Back the way you came in yesterday, along the road and across the South West River on a very ingenious punt-like boat system. Or walk along the beach, over the sandhills and along the river to the same point. The track opens up to large natural grassland, thus the name and an abundance of birdlife. From here we walk around Grassdale Lagoon and then inland to Kelly Hill Caves, through a much taller gumtree forest, before meeting the Burgess Hike. There is a short side-trip here to the old entrance of Kelly Hill Caves. Look out for the many craters which feed water into the caves below. At Kelly Hill Caves Visitor Centre pass through the iron ‘gate’, to mark the end of the 67km Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail.

Walking: Easy to moderate / 11km / 3-4 hrs
Meals: Breakfast, walkers lunch pack and 2-course dinner
Accommodation: Excellent private housing or Seafront Hotel

ACCOMMODATION & DINING

OVERVIEW

Comfort is always a priority, at the end of each day on these Kangaroo Island walking holidays a hot shower, glass of wine and an excellent two-course meal awaits. A comfortable night’s sleep ensures you’ll wake refreshed and primed, ready for the next day’s walking after breakfast.

We travel to the north side island to our superb private housing accommodation perched right above Snelling beach. You’ll find the beach deserted pretty much all the time so an evening or morning stroll along the beach is definitely in order. The accommodation is simply stunning. This is not a hotel, but works more like a lodge, thus the rooms are a mixture of style and there is some variance to size. Bathrooms will have to be shared here but it’s a small price to pay for the amazing location. 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’s experience is a magic one, but some rooms might have a better view or be bigger, we can’t help that.

You will enjoy two-course dinners at the retreat, utilising fresh local produce. 

We are based at private accommodation for the 3 or 4 nights whilst we are on Kangaroo Island. This accommodation is nestled right on what is almost our own private beach. The Villas are just gorgeous as are the views. The Seafront Hotel will be utilized dependent on walks reopening.

Packed lunches and picnics complete the circle ensuring that your appetite is always satisfied. In fact, you can look forward to having lunch on a daily basis at incredible locations on the island. A walker’s lunch may include a high protein type salad, a roll or a wrap, a muesli bar, cake or muffin and a piece of fruit. Each day is slightly different. Lunch is always augmented by Auswalk’s famous trail mix. Importantly, you start each day with a substantial breakfast. This is a great way to ready yourself for the upcoming walk.

Kangaroo Island has a burgeoning wine industry and is also well known for its marron and unique Ligurian honey.

Alcohol or drinks with meals are not included (except some wine /tea/coffee and juice with breakfast).

Please note the accommodations you are staying at are remote there is limited alcohol and snacks available for purchase. If there are any particular drinks or snacks you would like please make sure you bring these to the island with you.

GENERAL INFO

GETTING THERE AND AWAY

Flying (highly recommended)
Arrive at Kingscote Airport on Kangaroo Island around 10 am. You can fly from Adelaide Airport through Regional Express. The flight takes around 30 minutes. There is a 9.30 am flight daily please check times on the Regional Express website. You will need to arrange your own flights.

We will transfer you back to Kingscote in time to catch the evening flight at 6.30 pm to Adelaide.

Bus and ferry

WEATHER

This trip is suitable at any time in the year. However, spring and autumn are the kindest conditions for walking. See the Bureau of Meteorology’s information about temperatures and rainfall ahead of time to ensure proper clothing.

THE TRACK

Please note that the coastal sections of this track are heavily eroded, making the terrain very rocky and rough. While they are easy to navigate walking along these sections can be challenging and should be taken slowly and carefully. We recommend solid walking shoes with ankle support and a Vibram sole.

Walking poles are useful along these sections and are recommended if you are accustomed to using them or if you are unsteady on uneven ground.
