Flinders Chase National Park - Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island Holidays

If you are a nature lover, then Kangaroo Island is an absolute must. Native kangaroos, koalas, wombats, seals and echidnas are found in abundance and genuinely in the wild. Take time to explore the island fully - from the striking geological formations of the Remarkable Rocks and Admiral’s Arch, to a stroll down the beach to watch the seals laze in the sun. Known as KI to the locals, this island sanctuary is one of the top-rated tourist attractions in Australia, offering boutique luxury experiences such as the exclusive Southern Ocean Lodge.

Known for its diverse landscapes, native bushland, adventure and amazing wildlife, Kangaroo Island is one of the treasures of South Australia and provides another great reason for visiting nearby Adelaide.

Iconic landscapes

Surrounded by fishing grounds and endowed with fertile farmland Kangaroo Island is renowned throughout Australia for producing exquisite gourmet food and wine experiences. The laid-back vibe is complemented by a thriving arts community with islanders producing items such as hand-blown glass, furniture and much more.

Kangaroo Island also has the most amazing coastline, ranging from rocky, wave-pounded cliffs to sandy, sheltered coves. It is a haven for divers, surfers and fishermen alike and just about anyone who likes to wander barefoot along the shore.

Unique wildlife

The island is the perfect destination for those who desire peace and tranquillity. There is plenty of opportunity to see some of the wildlife that have made the island their home with over a third of the island a national park and home to colonies of seals, dolphins and the eponymous kangaroo. Kangaroo Island is one of the best weekend escapes, easily accessed by the Kangaroo Island ferry so it’s convenient for those already enjoying the cultural sophistication of nearby Adelaide.           

South Australia has plenty to offer the discerning traveller, from the arty vibe of capital city Adelaide, to the vast expanse of the The Flinders Ranges, South Australia’s largest mountain range and home to the natural amphitheatre, Ikara (Wilpena Pound).  Factoring Kangaroo Island and the vineyards of Barossa Valley into this bio-diverse region will turn any holiday Down Under into an epic journey of discovery.

Make sure you visit Kangaroo Island's Seal Bay Conservation Park where you can walk along the sandy beaches with seals metres from your feet.
