GETTING THERE

Located a hop off the coast from the mainland, Kangaroo Island is Australia’s third largest island, 155km long by 55km wide.

While Kangaroo Island suffered damage as a result of bushfire in January 2020, many parts of the island are completely unchanged and ‘KI’ (as the locals call it) is still very much open for business.

Home to an abundance of native wildlife, Kangaroo Island is widely regarded as Australia's Galapagos. 

Visitors can wander among the sea-lion colony at Seal Bay, go sand-duning at Little Sahara and swim with dolphins on the stunning north coast. There are wineries to visit in Kingscote, Cygnet River and on the Dudley Peninsula and freshly shucked oysters to try at American River. There’s also an award-winning gin distillery, a brewery and great dining at cafes and restaurants showcasing fine ingredients made by the island’s small-scale producers, organic Ligurian honey and freshwater marron among them.

As Kangaroo Island recovers from the natural wildfire event (a fact of life in Australia and many other countries), now more than ever the resilient local community is keen to welcome visitors to their island home.

Wonders of KI

Wonders of KI
For about 500 million years, the Antarctic winds that buffet Kangaroo Island have been sculpting granite boulders into a stunning natural work of art now known as the Remarkable Rocks. Standing sentinel on the south-west coast, the fluid, surrealist shapes ignite the imagination and to wander among the outcrop is the best way to truly appreciate their grand scale and evolving beauty. Just one of the Island's many, extraordinary wonders inviting exploration. Watch video »
