Premier launches new Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail

Friday, 14 October 2016

South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill today officially launched the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail, after spending the past few days walking the Trail with his family.

The $5.8 million Trail was a State Government commitment at the last election, designed to strengthen Kangaroo Island’s reputation as an international tourist destination.

Kangaroo Island is a landscape of national significance, sometimes referred to as ‘Australia’s Galapagos’ with spectacular coastal views, unspoilt habitat, and abundant wildlife and flora.

Hundreds have already booked for the five-day, four-night adventure which stretches for 61 kilometres along the south-west coast of the Island through Flinders Chase National Park.

The trail has also been mapped by Google and is available on Google Street View, so that anyone around the world who can’t visit South Australia can still marvel at the natural wonders and fauna of Kangaroo Island.
