Travel tip

Not driving? Several tour operators run multi-day tours around the island with some dedicated to wildlife, others dedicated to food and wine, and a happy few that are a little bit of both. Check out Kangaroo Island Odysseys and Kangaroo Island Wilderness Tours.

Insider secret

Give 1860's life a whirl and book a tour around the little-known Hope Cottage Museum in Kingscote. Originally built in 1859, the cottage is the restored home of Charles and Michael Calnan – the offspring of some of the first settlers on the island.
