Kangaroo Island is a bit of paradise off the coast of South Australia. 96 miles (155 km) in length with a population of just 4,400 people, it is an unspoiled haven for Australia's native birds and animals. Kangaroos and koalas abound, and on the beaches sealions bask while pelicans fly overhead. From sand dunes to rugged cliffs, golden beaches to dense forests, the island really has it all.
As well as natural beauty, Kangaroo Island is known for its good eating. Wines, fresh fish, local honey and goats' cheese are just some of the specialties. A popular but unspoiled holiday destination, the island also has art galleries, massage and spa retreats and swimming with dolphins .
Kangaroo Island is surprisingly large and though the island can be visited in one day trip from Adelaide, spending at least two days will allow to further discover the beauty and wildlife diversity the place has to offer. An overnight trip at one of the numerous lodging across the island would give the option for more discovery time.
What a greay day!! could not asked for better value, went like clockwork with no complaints 10/10 Keith NSW.
The tour was excellent from start to finish and was a wonderful overview of a superb Island. The very best thing was our driver, Les, he was quite simply OUTSTANDING and you should cherish him!! On all our travels we have never had a more informed, friendly, humerous and talented guide. The hotel we stayed at also added to the great value for money of a well conceived tour. Congratulations Viator!
What a FANTASTIC time! This had to definitely be the highlight of our tour in Australia. We had Liz as a tour guide and we couldn't have asked for a better person! He was funny, nice, thoughtful, and knew the land like the back of his hand! The only thing that I really wish wasn't part of this tour was the Parndana Wildlife Park. The birds had no room to fly, the place was in terrible condition, the koalas only had a stump of a tree and had people poking and prodding them all day long. What a prison for these animals. It was a really sad place to visit and almost all of the other guests on the tour thought the same thing. If you love animals, DO NOT go to this place! Why not have the tour see the penguins instead?? I was really disappointed that this was not part of the tour. Other than that, it was great! I LOVED the sanctuary itself!
A car and passenger ferry service runs from Cape Jervis on the mainland to Kangaroo Island four times a day. The journey takes 45 minutes. Buses run from Adelaide to Cape Jervis and on Kangaroo Island.
