Travel to Cape Jervis to get the ferry to Kangaroo Island. Kangaroo Island is an area of outstanding coastal scenery and is considered to be the best place in Australia to see native wildlife in the wild. Over one third of the island is protected by conservation and national parks and much of the island vegetation has never been cleared for farming making it one of the most unspoilt places in the world.
Highlights such as the bird of prey show at Raptor Domain, walking on the beach amongst a colony of Australian sea lions at Seal Bay, holding a koala or feeding the kangaroos at the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park. Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch in the Flinders Chase National Park are must see highlights for the stunning coastal scenery, rock formations and to watch the colony of fur seals at play in the massive surf. The island also has many pristine beaches to explore such as Vivonne Bay, Hanson Bay or the secret Stokes Bay, which is accessed via a short walk through a winding rock corridor. Make sure you take the time to go for a walk to see kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and all the native wildlife in the wild.
Kangaroo Island also has a reputation for excellent local produce. Take some time to visit the many farm gate and local producers to try honey, sheep’s cheese, marron, lobster, oysters, wine and spirits (especially the local gin). Seafood is featured on most menus and a real highlight is the locally caught King George Whiting.
