Kaiki Circuit is a 3.3km, grade 1 Circuit hike located in Granite Island Recreation Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.


The 1.9km walk around Granite Island is a great way for people, including families with children and strollers, to discover the island.

Begin the walk in Victor Harbor, by crossing the causeway. Horse drawn trams operate across the causeway, providing a new experience for children.

The trailhead is on the island, just after the causeway reaches the island.

Discover more about the wildlife, geology and history of the island with the interpretive signs along the trail. Explore granite boulders including Umbrella Rock, and take in the views of Encounter Bay, the Bluff, islands and whales. Return at night time to see the Little Penguins, or visit the Penguin Interpretive Centre during the day.

For parents with prams, or those with mobility issues, including wheelchairs, we suggest walking anti-clockwise, which is to turn sharp right after leaving the the causeway. There is a long flight of steps at the other end of the trail, but this is easily avoided by taking the shortcut gravel ramped path from the top of the island. There are no other steps on the circuit trail. A review on PushAdventures.com.au notes that the start of the trail can be steep, and that the shortcut (the gravel ramped path) may be too steep for some people with mobility aids or wheelchairs, and they recommend returning via the way you came.
