North Coast Road truly is the road less travelled. You may have travelled across some of the North Coast Road from time to time, but have you travelled the entirety of the road, starting from the Western end, and travel East? It is truly the best way to take in the natural beauty at its best. Start the drive by discovering some of our heartlands most productive agricultural land, with picturesque rolling hills and big trees. You will then be taken down Constitution Hill, one of Kangaroo Island’s most photographed outlooks, into Snelling Beach. Middle River, which flows into Snelling Beach is glorious, and you would think you have been taken into another world as you take the winding road up the hill through the gum lined road.
Not too far down the road, you will soon find yourself descending into Stokes Bay. This is the perfect stop to make sure you take the cave-like walk to discover our secret beach, just follow the signage. When you can finally pull yourself away from the beach, stop off at the Café for some of the freshest seafood on the Island.
Continuing along North Coast Road, you will travel through the fire affected Lathami Conservation Park, which then opens out onto more spectacular agricultural land. It is here that you soon discover the Islands vastness. Your next descent is into Smith Bay, and the vista is unmistakably stunning.
From here you are not far from a little KI fun. Georges Castle is just around the corner, along with the Old Wisanger School, and before you know it, you are back at the Emu Bay turnoff. To round off a brilliant day on the road, we think knock-off drinks at the Brewery are in order!
