Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail – Admirals Arch Side Trip is a 9.6km, grade 4 return hike located in Flinders Chase National Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 3hrs to complete.

Summary

Spend 5 days hiking the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail along the spectacular coastline of south-west Kangaroo Island.

We’ve listed each of the 5 sections on a separate entry:

4 hours, 9km return

This optional sidetrip is well worth it if you have 3-4 hours to spare, either at the end of Day 2, or the start of Day 3. The Cape du Couedic Spur Trail heads south, connecting with the Weirs Cove Hike and onto Admirals Arch Walk. At Weirs Cove see the remains of the flying fox which hauled supplies up the 90 metre cliff from the jetty below, before continuing on your walk with the lighthouse looming ever so closer on the horizon. Passing the lighthouse, built in 1909, continue down to Admirals Arch to see long nosed fur seals basking in the sun on the rocks and inside the cave.
