Kangaroo Island

Pristine beaches, unspoiled wilderness and abundant wildlife

One of the Earth’s last unspoilt refuges

The scenery on Kangaroo Island is breath-taking, and largely untouched. Travel through dense bushland to discover wonderful hidden-beaches, adventure over rolling hills and around rocky cliffs to discover some of the most incredible scenery in Australia. Located approximately 45 minutes by ferry from the South Australian southern coastline, Kangaroo Island is 509km of native bushland, wildlife, adventure and exploration. There is a myriad of experiences to be discovered on the island, from pristine beaches, stunning sunsets, ample wildlife and incredible locals with a passion for sharing their island home with the rest of the world.

With much of the island hidden by bushland, wildlife is abundant – making Kangaroo Island the perfect location to catch a glimpse of some of Australia’s most iconic wildlife; kangaroo’s, koala’s and echidna’s.

The island has some of the best adventure holidays Australia has to offer, making it an adventurer’s paradise. Make sure to include Kangaroo Island on your next Australian discovery.

  • Sample the fantastic range of boutique produce crafted on the island. Uncover incredible gin, high-quality wines and artisan foods.
  • Get up-close-and-personal with the wildlife on Kangaroo Island in their natural habitat unperturbed by your presence as they go about daily life, making for a genuine and unique wildlife encounter.

The temperature on Kangaroo Island is very similar to that in Adelaide, often only a couple of degrees cooler.

Throughout summer (December to February), temperatures vary between 15 – 24° C (59 – 75.2° F) and winter temperatures range between 8 – 15° C (46.4 – 59° F). Both are great times to visit, despite the varying climates.

August and spring are much more mild seasons, with temperatures averaging around 15 – 20° C (59 – 68° F). With more consistent weather, these seasons are great opportunities to explore the island.
