Kangaroo Island at a Glance
Sitting off the South Shore coast, Kangaroo Island is one of South Australia's treasures. Wild animals, historic townships, beautiful farms and stunning sea-coasts make it a fun place to visit.
Kangaroo Island's most iconic sight are the Remarkable Rocks. These warped granite boulders have been gracefully carved by eons of wind, rain and surf. Sea caves, arches and sand dunes are also popular places to visit.
Nearly half of Kangaroo Island contains old growth trees and scrub-lands. Without the disruption of non-native foxes and rabbits, the island's traditional animals have thrived. You can watch for the kangaroos, koalas, echidnas and dozens of threatened seabirds who call Kangaroo Island home.
Visiting natural wonders all day can work up your appetite. Luckily, Kangaroo Island is famed for its food. Fresh fish, famous honey, fruits and wine are all found in abundance.
