Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail – Day 5: Kelly Hill Section is a 7.6km, grade 5 One way hike located in Flinders Chase National Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 2hrs 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:

2.5 hours, 7.5km

The final day continues to follow the Hanson Bay Hike, past Grassdale Lagoon, watch out for birdlife, especially in the early morning. The inland walk continues into Kelly Hills, through the taller forest before meeting the Burgess Hike. On a short sidetrip here you can see the old entrance to Kelly Hill Caves. Back on the main trail, watch out for the craters which feed water into the caves below. Nearing Kelly Hills Caves Visitor Centre, there is a celebration spot marking the end of the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail.
