About the Walking Trail
This hike is part of Day 5 of the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail.
The hike can also be done by other walkers as a single section, without the need for a Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail Pass or ticket. If walking just this section, allow a full day for the return trip or try to arrange a pick-up.
This spectacular trail meanders from Kelly Hill Visitor Centre to Hanson Bay. It passes through banksia heath, Pink Gum woodlands, mallee and coastal heath, alongside freshwater lagoons, and over dunes to viewpoints that provide wonderful vistas inland and along the coast. Allow most of the day for the return trip or try to arrange a pick-up.
Access: This hike begins at Kelly Hill Visitor Centre, and the beginning takes in the Burgess Hike and May Walk.
