Starting from the Kai Kai Nature Trail car park off Mallee Drive, Murray River National Park, this walk takes you on a circuit along Katarapko Creek via the Kai Kai Nature Trail. This short and easy loop takes walkers along the banks of Katarapko Creek and through the surrounding flood­plain in the Katarapko section of Murray River National Park, providing the opportunity to discover the native plants, ani­mals and the history of the area. Kai Kai means 'plain' in the Ngarrindjeri language. The trail is well marked, with interpretive signs explaining the range of life found on the floodplain, how the plants and animals are affected by seasonal changes and how indigenous people lived in this envi­ron­ment. This loop consists of narrow, mostly flat walking trails with uneven natural surfaces and compacted natural surfaces and is suitable for most fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
