The Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail opened in late 2016. The five-day walking trail weaves its way through one of South Australia’s most botanically unique areas before reaching the rugged, remote and spectacular coastline of the Southern Ocean. The vision of the trail is to build on the Island’s reputation as an international tourist destination by offering a nature based tourism experience. By linking in with commercial tour operators the options available range from basic backpacker tours to gourmet food and wine and basic to luxury off-trail accommodation, as well as being open to independent walkers.

If you know of someone who should be considered for an award there’s still time to nominate. Get your nomination in by 14 September 2018.

Bar will be open for purchase of drinks, light refreshments provided.

For catering purposes please RSVP Thursday 4 October 2018 to Greg Boundy
