Kangaroo Island Experiences

But just because it's wild, don't underestimate the welcome...

Some 4,600 folk live here, most of them primary producers, many of them descended from Islanders who have farmed the land and fished the seas for generations. Naturally enough, being surrounded by fertile lands and rich waters, Kangaroo Island produces some of Australia's finest gourmet foods. Gastronomic adventurers should get ready to be amazed by the likes of freshly caught King George Whiting, sheep's cheese, marron, a unique variety of honey and an exciting range of varietal wines. As if this isn't enough on your plate, you'll also find rich histories, a thriving arts community, and a range of accommodation options ranging from outdoor swags to lighthouse keeper's cottages to super-chic retreats. So we'd like to extend a wild and very warm welcome to Kangaroo Island - Australia's premier wildlife destination.

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.
