things to do, accommodation, attractions

Pristine beaches, patches of native bushland, and thrilling adventure activities await visitors on the spectacular Kangaroo Island in South Australia.

Just a short ferry ride off the coast of South Australia’s Fleurieu Peninsula lies the small island separated from the mainland by a 15-kilometre stretch of ocean.

At 155 kilometres long and up to 55 kilometres wide, the island covers an area of 4,416 square kilometres, and is brimming with adventure activities, natural attractions, foodie finds and historic sites.

A visit to Kangaroo Island allows visitors to do as much or as little as they please – take a picnic to the beach for the day or tour the numerous wineries and farm gates. Small townships dotted around the island offer basic services and food and beverage options.

The west of the island is still recovering from the impacts of bushfires in January 2020, and much of the accommodation and activities lost are being rebuilt, so currently many of the attractions are focused on the east of the island.
