Kangaroo Island

A must visit

Common feedback from travellers is that their time spent on Kangaroo Island was their most memorable in their whole Australian experience.

We shouldn’t be surprised. After all…

Kangaroo Island Marine Adventures, South Australia

Kangaroo Island is regarded as the best location to see Australian wildlife in the wild. It is a destination of stunning scenery such as the Remarkable Rocks. It is a place you can come face to face with iconic Australian landscapes and friendly locals.

Wildlife in the wild

Some like to call Kangaroo Island a zoo without fences. Kangaroos, koalas, wallabies, penguins, echidnas and bird life all call the island home. Seal Bay is the only place in Australia where you can walk on the beach amongst a colony of endangered Australian sea lions.

Kangaroo Island gives you Australian nature and wildlife at its very best.

Culture and heritage

With all the wildlife and natural beauty you could be forgiven for thinking Kangaroo Island is uninhabited by humans. Although the resident population only numbers 4,500 people, its an island with fascinating human stories to tell. From the wild early tales of escaped convicts and sealers to proudly being the home of Australia’s first free settlement it is a place with a history unlike anywhere else in Australia.

Today Kangaroo Island is home to farmers, winemakers, artists, chefs and many more welcoming people. They are proud of what they have and take delight in showing it off to visitors.

Stunning scenery

Rugged coastal cliffs, sheltered bays cupped between steep headlands, vast native bushland and rolling hills of farmland are just some of the landscapes on offer. Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch are surely two of Australia’s most fascinating coastal landmarks.

On Kangaroo Island ‘deserted’ beaches are just that – unless you count the kangaroos and sea lions that occasionally visit.

Accommodation options

From the ultimate in luxury at Southern Ocean Lodge to quality hotel accommodation or simple lodgings, Kangaroo Island has accommodation to suit everyone.

A large island

Kangaroo Island is 155 kilometres (96 miles) across and literally packed with places to see and things to do. Which means you need to give yourself time to explore its wonders.
