Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail: 10 Best Tips - AmazingPlaces.com

Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail

Is this Australia's most beautiful walking trail?

Kangaroo Island's wilderness trail is a 5-day trek of about 61 kilometers through unspoilt nature in Australia. You'll walk through the bush and past high cliffs, and if you're lucky you'll regularly have kangaroos for companions.


I was amazed at the wealth of wildlife on this island. Which actually made me not want to stop. Even though I was a little tired. This walk shows how rough the southern part of Australia is.

The route covers the southwest of the island. You will walk through the famous Flinders Chase National Park, Kelly Hill Conservation Park and the Cape Bouguer Wilderness Protection Area.
