Auswalk has been guiding Kangaroo Island walking holidays for nearly 20 years, walking the island and parts of the trail that have subsequently morphed into the new Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail. Their Kangaroo Island walking holidays combine these new magnificent sections of track, with their favourite old bits. Given that the island is the third largest in Australia, it has a lot to offer, but it can only be fully explored on foot.
With over a quarter of the island’s area protected within national parks, it’s a paradise for walkers and naturalists. Tall limestone cliffs dominate the coastline and deeply incised creeks flow out to sea. There are stunning stretches of coastal landscapes, as well as vast areas of wilderness and highly visible terrestrial and marine wildlife.Family Friendly Non Smoking

The Kangaroo Island Wilderness trail is on Australia’s third largest island and newest bucket list walk. Forests, lagoons, white-sand beaches and sea cliffs pounded by thunderous swells are just a small part of what makes this island unique. 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. But if walkers are surprised at how easy it is to see marsupials and wildlife, they’re even more astonished by the scale and diversity of the place.
They see the diversity and scale close up by hiking the 61-kilometre Wilderness Trail that takes in Flinders Chase forests, the surreal sculptures that are Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch, untrammelled beaches and kilometre upon kilometre of cliff top hiking. They also walk Ravine des Casoars a true path less travelled walk.
Other highlights are Kelly Hill Caves and the 7000-strong colony of fur seals that take refuge in the stunning sands at Seal Bay, frolicking on rocky platforms.
With its’ dense forests, green wetlands and stunning stretches of coastal terrain, Kangaroo Island is a hiker’s dream, a true paradise for walkers and naturalists alike.Family Friendly Non Smoking

Expect breathtaking coastal scenery, magnificent coastal forest and an abundance of wildlife. A quarter of the island, Australia’s third-biggest, is protected within national parks, making it a sanctuary for native animals, like platypus and Koalas.
