Visit Kangaroo Island
Kangaroo Island may be just 15km from the mainland, but it is a world away in terms of seclusion and natural diversity. It is regularly recognised as Australia’s own Galapagos: arguably the best place to see the widest range of Australian native animals in their natural habitat. Seal Bay is home to a permanent colony of 500 rare Australian sea-lions, the sand hills and rock faces around Penneshaw and Kingscote are breeding grounds for Little Penguins, while pink pelicans, fur seals, wallabies, possums, echidnas, goannas, platypus, sea eagles and numerous bird species all abound. Kangaroo Island is also renowned for its diving, with more than 60 shipwrecks littering the rough coast.
