There's barely time to look around while we get used to our vehicles, but once we're set we can appreciate how thick and unforgiving nature is as we journey along bushland trails. The terrain changes quickly: one moment we're sliding at right angles on slippery sand near the beach and the next we're roaring across pasture land, past kangaroos and wallabies, goannas and prickly Kangaroo Island conesticks the locals call yaccas, beside grasslands where wildflowers bloom in the sunshine. We climb to the top of a rise and can see the six kilometres of Vivonne Bay with its milky jade seas, white silica sands and small fleet of cray boats bobbing on their moorings.
