Experience this beautiful part of Australia with both Adventurous Women & Park Trek, as we explore one of the country’s most scenic destinations. Our Kangaroo Island tour is our easiest walking tour, as most of the trails are well groomed with only one notable climb on one of the walks.

Our Kangaroo Island walks take in Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch, Cape Borda, Iron Hill, Hanson Bay, Rocky River, Snake Lagoon and Ravine des Casoars. See Australian sea lions up close and personal and tour Kelly Hills Caves.
