My wife and I love nature and animals, and often frequent National Parks all around Australia. This is one of the best ones we've visited, and is well deserved of it's excellent reputation. Spending Christmas in Kangaroo Island, we decided to make use of the...More
We spent over 9 hours (afternoon and evening) in the park: visitor center, remarkable rocks, lighthouse, admiral's arch, walk to the cover, platypus loop... Saw New Zealand fur seals, including some baby seals nursing; wallabies, possums, goanna, birds, koalas, etc. Alas, we did not see...More
From the visitor center we took the Black Swamp Hike (loop), the only longer loop from the visitor center. The first part of this trail is also the trail for a few other, short hikes and therefore more busy. On the second part we saw...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.
