About Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island is Australia’s third-largest, situated 112 kilometres southwest of Adelaide.

Boasting 509 kilometres of gorgeous coastline and a number of excellent national parks, Kangaroo Island is a haven for wilderness and wildlife lovers. It is home to seals, penguins, dolphins, echidnas and, of course, plenty of kangaroos.

One of the best areas to mingle with the local animals is by Rocky River towards the west coast, adjacent to Flinders Chase National Park’s fascinating rock formations and beautiful backdrops.

The port of Penneshaw on the island’s east coast offers frequent sailings every day across the Backstairs Passage to Cape Jervis on the mainland’s southwest coast. From there, you are just over 100 kilometres from Adelaide, making it a useful gateway to the state of South Australia.

About Australia

Australia is the world’s sixth largest country, by land area, consisting of the mainland, Tasmania and thousands of smaller offshore islands.

For such a massive nation, the population only reaches around twenty-four million, culminating in a huge expanse of breath taking, untouched wilderness, known as ‘the outback’, with almost ninety percent of Australians residing in coastal cities. Sydney, the largest of which, boasts a collection of beaches and trendy bars alongside its iconic Opera House and Royal Botanic Garden.

Australian excursions include jaunting off to the Whitsunday Islands for Great Barrier Reef diving, or hopping over to Kangaroo Island for its wonderful National Park, while the Tiwi Islands, in the north, showcase the fascinating Aboriginal way of life.

With numerous islands around the Australian coast, travelling by ferry is the best way of reaching the mainland, allowing you to enjoy the brilliant oceanic views along the way.
