Kangaroo Island Visitor Information
Kangaroo Island sits off the coast of South Australia and is Australia's third-largest Island. At 155 kilometers long and up to fifty-five kilometers wide, it covers an area of 4,416 square kilometers, and is separated from the mainland by a fifteen kilometer stretch of ocean. Think of an area six times the size of Singapore.
Best known to be a 'Zoo without Fences', wildlife encounters are a given. But if you need to make sure you find what you are looking for within a short timeframe, then it is best to tour with someone who knows exactly where to find them. Kangaroos, Sea lions, Koalas, Echidnas, Wallabies, Goannas, and marine mammals are plentiful, along with many species of birdlife. If you are after wildlife, then Kangaroo Island never disappoints.
But many people come here to re-connect. Re-connect with nature and each other, slow down, and rediscover the things that really matter in life. Our natural landscapes will astound, our walks and hikes are spectacular, the cellar doors and farm gates will surprise you, the fishing is world renowned, and our experiences are exhilarating. But what you will want is time, time to sit, and just take it all in. Believe us, Kangaroo Island and its people will grab your heart and won't let go.
