Best Hiking Trails in South Australia

South Australian walking trails offer the chance to journey through various breathtaking and pristine landscapes. From the undulating Flinders Ranges, to the white sandy beaches on Kangaroo Island, there are many hikes in South Australia suited for variable walking abilities. The Nilpena to Lake Torrens hike sets the walker on a 5-6-day adventure through the Flinders Ranges. Following the way of the camel, this South Australia walk meanders through a mosaic of native vegetation and wildflowers with the iconic desert landscape and sand dunes in the background. Hiking within this sacred Indigenous Country, stone artefacts can be found attesting to an enduring human occupation, highlighting it as one of the most special walking trails in South Australia. Jumping across to the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail, the hiker is guided by tour operators through epic scenery including towering cliffs, dramatic rock formations and wild beaches whilst being presented with expansive local knowledge. In a state with almost a quarter of its land covered by national parks, the hiking trails of South Australia are rich with wildlife and vegetation and spectacular inland and coastal viewpoints.
