Kangaroo island is a must for any visitor to South Australia. I was lucky enough to visit just last week, and was hugely impressed with the amount of wildlife and natural attractions to be found- with long sandy beaches, plenty of walking tracks, geological formations, stunning vistas from lookout points and of course, the plethora of wildlife here there really is something for everyone.

Getting to the island is easy, with either a short flight from Adelaide or a coach ride or hire car and ferry crossing from Cape Jervis to Penneshaw. The island is deceivingly vast and as such needs a good amount of time to explore- I’d suggest two nights as an absolute minimum, but three would be ideal. Once on the island, consider joining a small group tour by four-wheel drive providing the best opportunity for viewing wildlife with the knowledge of your expert driver/guide an important element.

See kangaroos, Tamar wallabies, koalas, echidnas, numerous bird species, New Zealand fur seals, Australian sea lions, penguins and platypus- a large number of species are endemic to the island and it’s unspoilt predator-free environment enables them the flourish. Much of the island is made up of National Park, Nature Reserves or Marine Reserves, providing plenty of chances to explore using walking tracks and small roads.

In Flinders Chase National Park in the west of the island, visit the Remarkable Rocks formations, and Admirals Arch. In the east of the island, admire the views from Prospect Hill, explore the beautiful Pennington Bay and Stokes Bay areas.
