About Kangaroo Island
Kangaroo Island - or KI as the locals call it - is a South Australian icon and one of the world’s finest nature destinations with breathtaking landscapes and fascinating wildlife. Just a short distance off the coast of South Australia, Kangaroo Island is internationally celebrated for its pristine wilderness and wildlife as well as a thriving food and wine industry.
KI is Australia's third-largest island at 155 km long and 55 km wide, with over 540 km of spectacular coastline. It is home to approximately 4,200 residents with its main industries being agriculture, tourism and fishing.
Over a third of the island is protected in nature reserves, and is home to a menagerie of native wildlife - from kangaroos and wallabies to echidna, goannas, platypus and koalas - just to name a few! Take a guided beach walk amongst Sea Lions on Seal Bay, jump on a nocturnal tour to see penguins parading the beach or take a swim with wild dolphins.
Enjoy regional award-winning wines or relish in an array of local produce from organic honey to locally made chutneys, olives, free-range eggs and fresh seafood. Activities on the island are as exciting and diverse as its wildlife and produce. There’s boating, swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, surfing, caving, bushwalking, quad-biking, sandboarding and so much more.
