Kangaroo Island Things to Do: 150 reviews and 392 photos


Grab a friend, jump on an ATV, and follow the boulder-strewn, rutted trail down to an otherwise inaccessible beach for a dip (if you brought your wetsuit along--the water's *that* cold) or just a stoll along the waterline. The beach at the end of the trail I rode had little tide pools with delicate corals and little limpets making their home in the quiet water.

These vehicles are pretty sturdy and don't roll easily, but still, if you have a bad back, it might not be advisable to ride on one since you *will* get jarred around a fair amount.

I think there were six big ATVs and a couple of smaller ones at the place mentioned below. Not-too-heavy adults can ride the small ones as well. Before you take off, make sure to practice for a few minutes on the small circuit near the trail head.

Address: Yarraman Ridge KI Outdoor Action
Directions: Near Vivonne Bay, off South Coast Road

I paid $40 to rent the ATV at the locale. The website below gives a different rate... maybe they have booking fees. Rental cost included a helmet and gloves.
