Kangaroo Island

Accessible from Adelaide through the South Australian Loop, Kangaroo Island is a chance to explore Australia’s natural beauty and diverse wildlife in the fascinating national parks. With the opportunity to see kangaroos, echidnas, wallabies, koalas, penguins, sea lions and native birds, Kangaroo Island is a microcosm of Australia’s unique animal species. Marine life, underground caves and craggy rock formations can be surveyed by visitors who dive, swim, snorkel and fish in the clean waters of Kangaroo Island, whilst unspoiled beaches offer a chance for relaxation and the perfect romantic setting to enjoy the region’s fine food and wines. With photogenic locations such as Vivonne Bay, Cape du Couedic, Cape Willoughby, Penneshaw, Kingscote and Kelly Hill Conservation Park to enjoy, Kangaroo Island is a paradise for nature lovers looking for a relaxing holiday in Australia.
