Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail
One of Australia’s great walks
Nature's secrets are waiting to be discovered at every step of the five-day trek, with the trail weaving its way through the most botanically unique area in all of South Australia before reaching the rugged, remote and spectacular coastline of the Southern Ocean. The unimaginable beauty of this part of the world has to be seen to be believed. Come and discover the magic for yourself.
This once-in-a-lifetime experience allows walkers to see the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail environment as it’s never been seen before. The Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail suffered significant damage in the bushfires that devastated communities in the summer of 2019 – 20.
In the first steps of recovery, our “fire recovery experience” allows you to explore the modified Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail hosted by our licensed tour operators. This is currently the only way to experience the trail, until 16th of December 2023.
From 16th of December 2023 the trail will re-open to independent walkers, contact the Flinders Chase Visitor Centre for information and bookings.
Whether you walk the trail with a licenced tour operator, or independently witness the untamed beauty of the KI Wilderness Trail.
For any enquiries, please call our friendly staff at the Flinders Chase Visitor Centre 0428 766 269 or email DEW.KIWTAdmin@sa.gov.au.
