The Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail is South Australia's newest long-distance walk. The 61km/five-day walk weaves its way through the most botanically unique area in all of SA before reaching the rugged, remote and spectacular coastline of the Southern Ocean.

Walk it alone or with a helping hand. Options include porterage, off-trail accommodation, transfers and holiday packages.

And for Great Walks readers there is a 10% discount on your booking fee!

Click here to book and use the code: GWME1218 for walks completed before 30 June 2019.

The Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail traverses the most botanically unique area in all of South Australia, with around half of the area's original vegetation still intact. More than 400 of the 891 species of native plants that occur on the island can be found in Flinders Chase National Park alone; some are found nowhere else in the world.

Among the spectacular scenery of the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail are the near pristine Rocky River and freshwater lakes including the Wilderness and Grassdale Lagoon that provide habitat for a diversity of birds and frogs, along with an essential water source for other native wildlife.
