About Kangaroo Island
Sea-lions basking on white beaches, koalas dozing in lofty eucalypts, pelicans soaring over shimmering lagoons...
Kangaroo Island is a pristine wilderness - a place that has offered protection to substantial populations of native Australian animals, a place of beauty and a place of escape. Kangaroo Island (or ‘KI' as the locals call it) is also big and surprisingly diverse.
You'll find soaring cliffs, dense bushland, towering sand dunes, wetlands and massive arcs of bone white beach.
A BIG Island - as the third largest island off the coast of mainland Australia, Kangaroo Island is more than a day-trip destination.
At 155 kilometres long and up to 55 kilometres wide, it covers an area of 4,416 square kilometres.
'We didn't realise the Island was so large' is frequently stated by visitors soon after their arrival.
