Kangaroo Island Food and Wine

One big picnic

Savour seafood plucked daily from the sea. Crack open sweet, freshwater crayfish or feast on a spit-roasted organic lamb. Kangaroo Island’s artisan producers add to the bounty, with Ligurian honey straight from the hive and handcrafted sheep’s milk cheese.

As a wine lover, you’ll intimately know your wines. Visit a cellar door and compare notes with Kangaroo Island winemakers. They’ll tell you about the labels they produce. You'll love the wine and stunning scenery on offer.  

Switch to island time

Soothe your palate while filling your senses with remarkable ocean views, rolling hills and natural bushland.

Kangaroo Island Spirits is South Australia's only boutique distillery, producing delicious liqueurs and cordials. They make Limoncello with organic lemons. The Wild Gin with native juniper is simply amazing. 

Formal dining

Make dining out on Kangaroo Island as casual or formal as you wish. Local hotels in most towns offer terrific, traditional pub food. Head to Kingscote, Penneshaw and American River for more formal dining.

Kangaroo Island also has a vibrant café scene. Order coffee and delectable pastries, then sit back and enjoy the million dollar views.   

Dine al fresco

Eating fresh fish and chips on a Kangaroo Island beach makes this simple meal magical. Dress it up with a great bottle of local wine and throw down a picnic blanket.

In a state where produce, producers and preparation are world-class, Kangaroo Island is one of the “must do” food and wine experiences. Come and get a taste of this unique gourmet-loving region.
