049-Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail here we come! Our expectations

Show notes

Gill and I have a break between Christmas and New Year and along with our friend Kelly we will be hiking the Kangaroo Island Wilderness Trail which is located not far from the mainland in South Australia.

This five day, four night trip is approximately 61km (without any add ons). We tried to do this trail earlier this year and didn’t book early enough.Lesson learnt.

This episode is an overview of what we are expecting but no doubt reality will be different.
