Ravine des Casoars Hike is a 7.4km, grade 3 Return hike located in Ravine des Casoars Wilderness Protection Area South Australia. The hike should take approximately 4hrs to complete.
This trail follows the ravine valley to the coast, passing along the creek bank and high above the valley floor, providing spectacular views. The French explorer, Nicolas Baudin, observed the Kangaroo Island Emu here in 1802, mistakenly identifying them as Cassowary. Tragically, the Kangaroo Island Emu became extinct at least ten years before the first official settlement in 1836.
The hike begins on the Ravine des Casoars Road, 7 km south of the Playford Highway, near Cape Borda Lightstation.
