Hi Archar

Firstly congratulations for choosing such a fantastic location for taking your family, you are in for a real ball. Give yourself lots of time to explore the Island, as there are over 1600 kilometres of fantastic tracks to explore.

For best value, make sure that you purchase the National Parks Pass, valid for 12 months, but gives you unlimited access to all the main feature in national parks on the Island, eg Seal Bay Beach walk with the Seals, the Lighthouse tours, etc.

If I told you here on the forum that the Chapman River camping is the best, then everyone will want to camp there, so keep it a secret.

I have written a couple of Blogs on the Island, so follow the Links Below:

October Visit Blog

March Visit Blog


Enjoy the Island and you will want too return.

Please feel free to ask any further questions.



Cheers

Fantastic blogs Stephen.

My wife and I visited KI for around 7-10 days duration several years ago and I now realise that I have to return for a second look and this time make the extra effort to do the walking tracks that you have included in your blog.

Your photos along these tracks are wonderful and I'm thinking that maybe we missed the best of what there is too see eventhough we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the island to anyone.

Just an aside to your blog, I noticed that you have the same vehicle that I do and I was just wondering what are the tyres that are on it in the photos?

kindest regards,
Wayne

Hi Wayne

Thanks for that, and yes it is a top destination to visit again and again.

As for the tyres on my Prado, I am running Bridgestone LT 694 in the standard sizing of 265/65 17. They are very quiet on the road and you would never know that they are LT's.



Cheers

Take a look at my half finished blog at http://oz4x4ing.blogspot.com/

I still have to get to the rest of the trip. But it will give you an idea of what we did.

Its a great spot and well worth the trip.

Hi Archar

March should be great, but be prepared for any type of weather, as we struck freak heavy rainfall in March last year. We had 110mm of rain in 1 night at Kingscote. Normally that time if the year it should be perfect.

Have a great trip.


Cheers
