Opening in October 2016, the KI Wilderness Trail is a five-day, 61km trail developed by National Parks South Australia and is on track to be one of Australia’s great walks. The trail begins at the Flinders Chase Visitors Centre, takes in the Platypus Waterholes and Snake Lagoon, Cape du Couedic, Sanderson Bay, Grassdale and Kelly Hill with wildlife, views and unforgettable experiences to be had along the way. We’re so excited about the opportunities the trail offers for our guests, as well as to have played a small part in its formation, as it courses through the hinterland of the natural heritage sanctuary created in the planning of Southern Ocean Lodge. The trail spans Kangaroo Island’s varying wild terrains, from eucalypt forests to marshland, beaches and coastal heath, and offers boardwalks and sign-posted trails complete with information about the island’s fascinating flora, fauna and ecology.
