Prospect Hill

Landmarks and Buildings

Matthew Flinders climbed Prospect Hill when navigating the North Coast of Kangaroo Island to determine his bearings in 1802.

Visitors can now climb this steep sand hill via 500 steps to the highest point on Kangaroo Island.

Views from the top include panoramic views of Pelican lagoon and Pennington Bay.

The Prospect Hill Stairs and lookout were upgraded in 2018/2019
The steps were constructed using stainless steel fittings and fibre reinforced polymer stairs and structural members.
