Long drive across the island if staying in penneshaw but well worth it. The scenery is very rustic and unspoilt with gum trees in abundance. Roads are twisty and winding but not heavily use Off road can be a challenge with ruts and hard crushed...More

Great visitor centre with Cafe and toilets. You buy a pass here to go in to the National Park. Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch are a must see on Kangaroo Island. Can get windy so hang on to your hat (I lost mine ! ).
The Remarkable Rocks definitely live up to the name. I just kept thinking how they looked like a talented artist had sculpted and carefully placed them there. I kept finding more to see in these beautiful sea carved natural sculptures, the colors, the shapes, all...More

We were there in August and asked the same thing and were told it wasn't necessary, they would see our car. But the hikes we did (Ravine Hike and Snake Lagoon Hike) if something happened, I think it would have been overnight before anyone saw our car as you are generally fairly remote, depending upon your selected hike.
I think it is best to advise your accommodation which hike you are doing and what time you expect to be back.
Depending upon the time of year you are visiting, don't expect to see anyone else on the trails, we certainly didn't.
We had the same thought about taking an EPIRBs after we were on the trails and we didn't come across any hiring option. I think it's something we are going to invest in.
I would recommend you do carry a basic first aid kit, as you can be quite remote and phone signal is virtually non-existent.
