Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island

Just a short hop from the mainland of South Australia, Kangaroo Island feels like a world away. It is a sanctuary for wildlife and a haven for those needing to escape the day-to-day stress of life.

Dramatic soaring cliffs pounded by the wild Southern Ocean meet pristine, secluded beaches and white sandy dunes. Aquamarine waters compliment a sea of deep green where you can swim at unspoiled beaches or dive the underwater graves of ghostly shipwrecks. Over half the island is native bush land, most of it preserved as national parks.

Soothe your soul in a natural wonder without peer

Doe-eyed sea lions bask on sandy white beaches, koalas doze in lofty eucalypts and seabirds soar over shimmering lagoons. Little Penguins waddle up the beach at night after a day at sea. You can swim with dolphins or snorkel with tiny leafy sea-dragons.

Discover secret surf beaches and the Remarkable Rocks, sculpted by the wind and wild seas over hundreds of millions of years.

Surrounded by these fertile lands and rich waters, Kangaroo Island also produces some of Australia’s finest gourmet foods. Freshwater crayfish, pure honey, organic dairy products and a superb range of wines are sure to find a place in food lovers' hearts.

Sleep under the stars or spoil yourself at Southern Ocean Lodge, one of Australia’s most prestigious wilderness retreats.

Kangaroo Island is a place of beauty and wide open spaces where you can find a little quiet time and let nature soothe your spirits.
