Kangaroo Island Holidays

Australia’s third-largest island is a haven for native wildlife and offers historic towns, tranquil rivers and great beaches for diving, sailing and surfing.

Secluded Kangaroo Island, off the coast of South Australia, features a breathtaking array of natural wonders within its 540 kilometres (340 miles) of coastline. Swim, surf and dive at pristine coves and secluded beaches. See magnificent rock formations and national parks filled with towering eucalypts. Visit the island’s restaurants and cellar doors to try local seafood, wines, spirits and fine produce grown on the island’s farms. 

Learn about the island’s heritage and European settlement in the charming towns. Visit the historic lighthouses on the island’s rugged capes, South Australia’s first European settlement at Reeves Point and Parndana Soldier Settlement Museum offer an interesting snapshot of Kangaroo Island’s past. 

The island features a diverse and scenic coastline, dotted with rugged cliffs, protected coves and breathtaking geological landmarks. Hit the surf at Vivonne Bay and Pennington Bay. Play in the rock pools at Stokes Bay and relax on the sand at Nepean Bay. Try fishing and kayaking along the American and Chapman rivers. Antechamber Bay is a lush haven with a lagoon and sand dunes. At D’Estrees Bay, dive among shipwrecks and see majestic sea dragons, harlequin fish and brightly coloured coral.

Venture into the island’s interior to find tranquil native Australian wilderness and conservation areas. Kelly Hill Conservation Park features impressive caves. Hike the trails at Flinders Chase National Park and see New Zealand fur seals lazing under Admirals Arch. Stop by the intriguing formations at Remarkable Rocks at sunset to see the red lichen on the rocks beautifully lit. Encounter kangaroos, koalas, echidnas, birdlife and penguins on your travels through Kangaroo Island or visit Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park to see rescued animals up close.

Reach Kangaroo Island by ferry to scenic Penneshaw or by plane to Kingscote, the island’s largest town. Explore the island by chartered tour, bike or car. No taxis service Kangaroo Island. Check your insurance policy if bringing a hire car to the island. Drive cautiously as many roads are unsealed and kangaroos can appear suddenly, especially at dawn and dusk. Enjoy this fantastic island getaway an enclave for native wildlife any time of the year.
