Highlights - Great Reasons To Go
Kangaroo Island is still a relatively undiscovered little slice of Australia, showcasing the best of unique Aussie coastal landscapes while bursting with a huge variety of native wildlife. With a relaxed rural feel, the island only ever gets busy during peak holiday seasons, and even then it has enough wide open spaces and densely vegetated National Park to make any crowd fade into virtual invisibility.
The natural beauty of the place can be seen at every turn; the cliffs and bays are simply spectacular with Vivonne Bay even having the award of Australia’s best beach bestowed upon it! The sheltered north coast provides mainly safe swimming in the clear temperate waters, while the jaggard coastline of the rugged south coast reveal intriguing and dramatic geological formations such as the Remarkable Rocks and the natural bridge, Admirals Arch.
KI teems with abundant wildlife and large sections of untouched forest. Many species for which Australia is famous for can be found here in large numbers including wallabies, kangaroos, koalas, echidnas, goannas, parrots, Sea eagles, cockatoos, penguins and Australian and New Zealand Fur seals. And let’s not forget the huge and amazing variety of aquatic life in surrounding waters! There are many opportunities to see these land and sea animals close up in their natural habitat.
Kangaroo Island is relaxed and relaxing, the landscape is pure Australia, the swimming and fishing is magnificent, and the animal life will fill you with wonder. Couple that with its reputation as a growing gourmet and organic foods hub and Australia’s newest designated wine region and this place really does have all the ingredients you require for a genuine and special Australian holiday experience. Give yourself at least seven days!
