Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail – Day 1: Rocky River Section is a 12.4km, grade 4 one way hike located in Flinders Chase National Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 4hrs to complete.
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:
The first day’s hike starts from the Flinders Chase Visitor Centre, following the Platypus Waterholes Walk over Black Swamp, with its ancient history of megafauna, and around the Platypus Waterholes. If you’re there early in the morning sit and wait to catch a glimpse of the shy platypus at one of the eight viewing platforms. Turning west, the trail follows the Rocky River Hike along Rocky River. Watch out for Rosenbergs Goannas (a monitor lizard) on the track. Pause for a moment at the rapids and rockpools along the way, and keep an eye out for wildlife coming into the water to drink. As today’s walk includes other walking trails, anyone can walk this day’s section.
