A magnificent 5 day walk showcasing the premier coastal splendour of Kangaroo Island. Distance approx 65 kms including side trails.
This multi-day walk which only opened on 1 October 2016 features a dazzling array of coastal landscapes and woodland forests, complete with abundant wildlife. It's a tent-based hike but the facilities are, in themselves, spectacular 21st century designs, utilising massive rainwater storage tanks and solar powered lighting for use of the shelters after dark. There's too much to say about it in this paragraph, and so have provided a link to my blog of the experience under the 'Find out more' link above.

A beautiful spot to take the pack off and be caressed by the sounds of the river.
Ultra-modern facilities await the hiker.
The magnificent sight that awaits following the Rocky River to its ocean outflow.
A reminder of treacherous conditions that awaited Nineteenth Century travellers on sailing ships.
The lightstation can just be made out in the distance on the Cape.

What can happen to 500 million year old granite when exposed to coastal erosive forces over millenia.
The point at which the track heads inland through coastal woodlands.
A killer seascape.
