Kangaroo Island Attractions

So much to see

To experience the essence of Kangaroo Island, you’ll need all of your senses.
There are breathtaking views around each corner. Animals can be viewed in their natural environment - in the wild. Sensual bouquets of wine, honey and essential oils tease your palate. A wilderness chorus sings at full voice, undisturbed by the “rat-race”.  

Little penguins, Penneshaw, South Australia

Kangaroo Island is like a zoo without fences; little penguin colonies, sea lions, wallabies, koalas and an abundance of bird life call the island home. There are giant cuttlefish, sea horses and other marine life to meet off the coast. 

Meet the locals

After dark, visit the Kangaroo Island Penguin Centre to see the colony of fairy penguins on the Kingscote foreshore.

See them outside their burrows or in rocks on the beach, interacting with other penguins, in couples or by themselves.

A tour of Seal Bay takes you unbelievably close to Australian sea lions as they bask in the sun on the beach.

There are other locals who have added to Kangaroo Island's attraction as a tourism destination. Farmers will gladly open their gates for a behind the scenes tour of rural life or you can visit an artist's studio to see a masterpiece being painted.

Hit the surf with the locals at Vivonne Bay, with more than six kilometres of stunning coastline.

Nature’s paradise

Expect something special from Kangaroo Island’s dedicated national parks, conservation parks and beaches. Flinders Chase is Kangaroo Island’s biggest park, with must-see attractions like Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch.

Special experiences

Climb a lighthouse or one of many lookouts for breathtaking panoramic views. Explore cathedral-like underground caves and other geological marvels. 

Swim with dolphins, walk through the bush with koalas looking down on you from the tall gum trees or join Australian sea lions as they bask in the sun on the beach at Seal Bay.

A little luxury

Kangaroo Island’s creatures are pretty amazing and so are the creature comforts. Add a little luxury to your holiday in this beautiful and unique place. “Detox” with a gym, day spa, massage and beauty treatment, then “retox” at the cafés and restaurants dotted around the island. Ah, the cycle of life. 

Kangaroo Island - it’s everything you could hope for and more than you could wish for.
