Known for its spectacular landscapes and amazing diversity of wildlife, Kangaroo Island is without a doubt a nature lover’s paradise. Apart from immersing themselves in a variety of exotic wildlife experiences here including walking amongst a colony of endangered Australian sea lions as well as getting up close with exotic reptiles, Tammar wallabies, kangaroos and possums, travellers, especially discerning foodies will also be pleased to known that this island is an epicurean haven.
Home to artisan food and wine producers, travellers can look forward to indulging their taste buds in an array of delicious foods and wines. Slurp fresh oysters straight from the sea, nibble on handcrafted sheep’s milk cheeses, and savour Ligurian honey straight from the hive.
Adventure seekers, too, will not want to miss-out on this place, as there are plenty of engaging outdoor activities offered here such as quad biking, sandboarding, trekking, caving and more.
From Adelaide, travellers can choose to take either the ferry or plane to Kangaroo Island. The former will take about 45 minutes to reach from Cape Jervis – a 1.5 hour drive from Adelaide – while the latter only takes 30 minutes from Adelaide Airport to Kingscote Airport on Kangaroo Island.
Some of the notable sights here include Remarkable Rocks, Clifford’s Honey Farm, Seal Bay Conservation Park, Flinders Chase National Park, and Raptor Domain.
