Kangaroo Island is Australia's third largest island, covering 4,500 sq.km. Over one-third is conservation land while the coast, with its beaches, cliffs, shipwrecks, lighthouses and marine parks runs for some 540kms. The wildlife and birdlife is a nature lover's paradise.

September-November is a wonderful time to see the spectacular array of wildflowers, birds and mammals. There are approximately 40 endemic floral species found on KI.

Kangaroo Island produces high-quality dairy products, pure honey, fine seafood, marron, olive oil and premium wines.

Getting there is easy! Self-drive from Adelaide takes about 2 hours, then take your vehicle on the 45 minute ferry crossing from Cape Jervis, or fly from Adelaide Airport directly to Kingscote, then hire a vehicle or join a guided tour.

Kangaroo Island offers a range of accommodation styles to suit your requirements and budget. Self-drive package of 1 night's twin share hotel accommodation, return ferry transfers for own vehicle and 2 passengers from $249 per person.
