Trail: Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail - 4 Nights, 65 km

I walked the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail last week. The five day / four night trail was fantastic. Lots of different environments to walk through, from bushland, forests, grasslands and stunning coasts.

The facilities provided for on the trail are first class, with clean, modern camp sites, plenty of rain water and a communal shelter / cooking area for walkers each night. The map and documentation provided for by Flinders Chase Visitor's Centre was excellent, and provided a detailed map, elevation and vegetation, and information regarding history, flora and fauna. Very well done.

The trail is well-marked, and can be completed without much training. I completed each day roughly within the time indicated, with a slow pace and plenty of breaks for photos. The opportunity to walk through such landscapes is amazing, and the KIWT is expertly organised / structured / maintained.

I had a magical time, and would highly recommend this trail.
