One of Australia’s premier wildlife destinations, Kangaroo Island is known for incredible scenery, a relaxed atmosphere and superb wilderness waiting to be explored.
Lying offshore from mainland South Australia, Kangaroo Island can be accessed by ferry from Cape Jervis or on a short flight from Adelaide. Whether you choose to visit on a day trip or on an extended adventure, you’re guaranteed a wildlife and nature experience like no other.
A third of the island is made up of protected nature reserves, all bursting with natural beauty. Wildlife enthusiasts will be in their element here, with many of Australia’s most iconic species calling this place home. Spot:

This is also one of Australia’s newest and most exciting wine regions. Combine a tour of some of the excellent cellar doors here with an exploration of some of the amazing fresh produce the island is known for; from oysters, crayfish, lobsters and crabs to fresh honey, lavender, milk and cheese.
Learn about Kangaroo Island’s history at the Maritime and Folk or Hope Cottage Folk Museums. A great destination for a family holiday, there are plenty of activities to keep younger visitors entertained too; from visiting farms and getting up close to wildlife to sand dune surfing at Little Sahara.
