ABOUT KANGAROO ISLAND
Kangaroo Island is a large Island located off the coast of South Australia. Whether you're interested in wildlife, photography, food & wine, the local art scene, celebrating a honeymoon or even bringing the family, there is something for everybody.
Located 14 kilometres (9 miles) off the South Australian coast, Kangaroo Island is only a short 20-minute flight from Adelaide Airport. Currently, two regional airlines service Kangaroo Island Airport with daily flights available. Most of our guests fly for convenience and/or time constraints.
Kangaroo Island is Australia’s third-largest Island (145×55 kilometres or 90×35 miles) covering over 4,500 square kilometres (3,400 square miles) and to the surprise of many, is of similar size to Long Island NY or Bali, Indonesia.
Kangaroo Island has a Mediterranean climate: typically warm to hot dry summers (December-February) with very low humidity; and cool, mild winters (June-August), making it an enjoyable destination to visit year-round. In fact, for those seeking wildlife experiences, the cooler months between May and September are the best time for viewing wildlife in the wild on Kangaroo Island!
Kangaroo Island is a wildlife hotspot. Despite a strong agricultural industry, nearly half of the original vegetation has been retained and over one third of the land is protected across 30 National and Conservation parks. This provides a fantastic habitat for a huge range of wildlife species, with some now endemic to the Island. Some key species you will be able to find include:
- Kangaroo Island Kangaroos;
- Tammar Wallabies;
- Short-beaked Echidnas;
- Australian Sea-lions;
- Long-nosed Fur Seals;
- Over 260 individual bird species;
- and much more!
