Why you should go to Kangaroo Island [Photos/Video]
We travelled to a few amazing places in Australia in the few years we lived here. We hadn’t heard much about Kangaroo Island, but decided to check it out as it sounded like wildlife haven. I’m so happy we did as our trip was incredible.
Let me introduce you to the beautiful Kangaroo Island with this video, first:
What do you think? Is that a good teaser? 🙂
After reading this post you’ll know everything about the highlights of Kangaroo Island. We also give you some tips on how to make the most of your trip on this incredible island.
I have to start with one of the “emblems” of Kangaroo Island. The 500 million year old Remarkable Rocks are pictured on most tourism images. This is a must see!
We were lucky to spend over an hour enjoying the view and wandering around on our own. Those huge granite boulders are really impressive.
This beautiful landmark is located in the Flinders Chase National Park, not far from the Remarkable Rocks.
New Zealand fur seals are always sunbathing, playing or resting on the rocks.
Ironstone Hill walk
We did the Ironstone Hill walk when we first arrived on the island. It was an amazing introduction to what was going to come. The landscapes were incredible and we had our first glimpse at the wildlife of KI.
Pristine and secluded beaches
There are plenty of beautiful beaches on Kangaroo Island. Western River Cove (pictured) is incredible and far enough from the main attractions, for you to have chances to be the only person admiring the beach. There’s a lot of small and unspoilt beaches on KI, especially on the north coast.
You can also find yourself wandering alone on the long beach of Antechamber Bay, in the Dudley Peninsula!
Seal Bay supports the third largest colony of Australian sea lions. Those fascinating creatures are listed as endangered and vulnerable. Can you spot them on the picture?
On top of encountering these beautiful creatures you will have the chance to enjoy the beautiful bay view.
– $16 per adult for the boardwalk self-guided tour, no beach access. No time limit, just check the closing time as it varies depending on the season
– $33 per adult for the 45min tour on the beach, including the boardwalk self-guided tour as well
We went with the first option. We had a lot of fun watching the seals from the boardwalk and felt that was good enough 🙂
