Regions of Kangaroo Island

Penneshaw & Dudley Peninsula, American River,
Kingscote & districts, North Coast, Parndana & districts,
West End and South Coast.

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.
If you traverse its 155km length you'll find soaring cliffs, dense bushland, towering sand dunes,
wetlands and massive arcs of bone white beach.
