Kangaroo Island, affectionately known to KI to locals, is a sanctuary located off the coast of South Australia. The country’s third largest island has more than 500 kilometres of coastline, which is adorned with beautiful beaches, soaring cliffs and spectacular sunsets.
But there is more to Kangaroo Island than the coast line. Sand dunes, dense bushland and wetlands are dotted across the island, ready for visitors to explore.
Described as one of the world’s great nature-based destinations, Kangaroo Island has an abundance of wildlife, with everything from kangaroos, to koalas and sea lions.
Less than 5000 people inhabit the region, many of whom have long family histories of farming and fishing. It’s led to an array of high-quality produce, which tourists can enjoy at various eateries, alongside local wines.
*In recent months Kangaroo Island has been affected by bushfires. However, visitors are encouraged to continue to visit the region in a bid to aid the recovery effort and stimulate the local economy.
