Cape Bouguer Wilderness Protection Area is a protected area located on the south coast of Kangaroo Island in South Australia about 84 kilometres (52 miles) south-west of Kingscote. The wilderness protection area was proclaimed in October 1993 under the Wilderness Protection Act 1992 in order to ‘protect and preserve the outstandingly high wilderness qualities of the area.’ It was created on land excised from the Kelly Hill Conservation Park. It is classified as an IUCN Category Ib protected area.[1][3][4][5]
