About Kangaroo Island

KANGAROOS SNOOZING UNDER TREES, Sea-lions basking on beaches, koalas dozing in lofty eucalypts, and endless white beaches to yourself...

Kangaroo Island is a place apart, pristine wilderness, unspoilt nature, of authentic products, experiences and people, which make you pause and reflect on the things that really matter in life.

Often referred to as a 'Zoo without Fences', Kangaroo Island is a place that has offered protection to substantial wild populations of native Australian animals.

Kangaroo Island (or ‘KI' as the locals call it) is also big and surprisingly diverse. 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, and is seperated from the mainland by a 15 kilometer stretch of ocean.

'We didn't realise the Island was so large'

is frequently stated by visitors soon after their arrival.


You will find soaring cliffs, dense bushland, towering sand dunes, and peaceful wetlands. The sea has the bluest hues, and the beaches are massive arcs of bone white sand. Our people are genuine, and passionate, and will tell you about their story.
