Discover Wildlife

Wildlife galore, get ready to explore!

Kangaroo Island is notoriously known for its abundant and beautiful wildlife but finding some of the more reclusive residents may require a little local knowledge. Guarantee sightings and insights on one of the Island's many wildlife tours...

Due to its isolation from the mainland, the island has suffered less from the impact of European settlement.
Subsequently, animal populations have thrived. The protection of the wildlife on KI is vital for the regional economy.

With over 24 protected areas, 19 National and Conservation Parks and 5 Wilderness Protection Areas,
Kangaroo Island is a sanctuary for many animals, birds and plant life.
