28 July 2018: The map below may not be available right now, please try again later.
We are experiencing severe rate limiting imposed by Google under their new map pricing arrangements. We will be implementing a solution to ensure as many people as possible can access the walking maps.
Under Google's new pricing structure, we will incur an annual fee in excess of AUD $5,000 for a service which was previously free. As a not-for-profit body largely lead by volunteers this is not an insignificant charge. You can support our work in promoting walking and walking trails with an membership from $22 per year.
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.
