Kangaroo Island

4.3
Wildlife Areas · National Parks · Lighthouses
Abandoned by Aborigines a few thousand years ago, Kangaroo Island attracts over 140,000 visitors each year. Flinders Chase National Park is a big draw for nature gazing, so bring your hiking boots and camera to capture images of koalas, kangaroos, and other protected wildlife. One species plays an important role in the economy, namely the Ligurian honey bee. These little workers produce some of the best honey in the world. The amount of recognition that the bees have brought the island is ironic considering the first settlers made their living off the hunting and export of whales and seals. Nowadays, these two species are protected and live peacefully along the shores of the island paradise. Add Kangaroo Island and other destinations to your itinerary using our Australia attractions planner, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.

Places to visit with Kangaroo Island

Message from Tourism Australia
Kangaroo Island, 13 kilometres (8 miles) off the coast of South Australia and 30 minutes by plane from Adelaide, is brimming with native animals, some of which aren't found anywhere else. It is also home to an established artisanal food scene, and one of the world's best hotels. More than one third of the island is protected by conservation areas and national parks, while lush farmland and small towns make up much of the rest. The island, known to the locals as "KI", is divided into seven regions, with four major towns: Kingscote (the island’s relaxed capital), Penneshaw (where daily ferries disembark), American River, and Parndana.
