Guide to Kangaroo Island
Kangaroo Island is a nature-lover’s bonanza, with prolific native wildlife, dramatic coastal sightseeing, and bountiful farmlands.
Kangaroo Island, 13 kilometres (eight miles) off the coast of South Australia and 30 minutes by plane from Adelaide, is one of the best places in Australia to see wild native animals, like koalas, kangaroos, sea lions and seals. Throw in some incredible geology and an easily accessed local food and beverage scene, and Kangaroo Island is a magnificent place for a self-drive holiday.
