Kangaroo Island



Must See Must Do

on Kangaroo Island

Thanks to Tourism South Australia and SA Central for the following information.






Flinders Chase National Park

Flinders Chase National Park

Marvel at Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch, just two of the many amazing land formations within the 33,000-hectare Flinders Chase National Park. There's also the 1909 Cape du Couedic lighthouse and wildlife aplenty, including kangaroos, koalas, echidnas and the endangered Cape Barren geese. Start with a visit to the fabulous Flinders Chase Visitor Centre.




Enjoy all the gourmet delights that KI has to offer

Island Indulgence

Take your tastebuds on tour through the island's growing range of gourmet produce - from award-winning sheep milk cheeses at the Island Pure Sheep Dairy to pure Ligurian honey and olive oil. Taste the boutique wines of this young wine region at the Sunset Winery Cellar Door and Dudley Wines Cellar Door, before tucking into the finest local produce at one of many great restaurants and cafes.




Some of the local beach goers

Seal Bay Conservation Park

Walk among the nation's third largest and most accessible colony of Australian Sea Lions as these cute creatures doze in the sun after lengthy fishing forays in the Southern Ocean. Various tours are available at the hugely popular Seal Bay Conservation Park: you can join a park ranger for a guided walk on the beach, of take a self-guided tour on the more accessible boardwalk.




This is where the local honey comes from

Pure Ligurian Honey

Kangaroo Island is home to the only known pure strain of Ligurian bee in the world. The bees descended from the Italian province of Liguria, imported in twelve hives in the 1880's and protected from other breeds of bee by the Island's isolation. The honey produced is of outstanding quality and no trip to Kangaroo Island is complete without sampling it. At both the Island Beehive and Cliffords Honey Farm you can taste the honey and learn more about the Ligurian bee.




An early oceanic navigation device

See The Light (House)

Envelop yourself in the Island's history with a tour of its spectacular lighthouses. Dating back to 1852, Cape Willoughby is SA's oldest lighthouse: you can tour it daily. At Cape Borda, tour the lighthouse and museum before exploring the old landing site and lightkeeper's cemetery. And at Weirs Cove wonder at how life was for the early keepers of Cape du Couedic lighthouse, visiting the remains of the jetty, water tank and storerooms that sustained life in this isolated post between infrequent supply ships.




Cool Sand Dunes

Little Sahara

Feel the sand between your toes as you wander the white slopes of Little Sahara, a series of spectacular sand dunes that rise out of bushland in the centre of the island. Take a sand board, climb to the top of those razorback ridges and ride the slopes back down to the bottom.




Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery

Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery

Delight in clever bush technology at Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Distillery, now the only commercial distillery of its kind in South Australia. Take a guided tour, see how traditional bush products (like solvent, stain remover and insect repellent) are made and discover historic relics from the 1930s, when 40 eucalyptus stills employed 600 people across the island.




Fabulous Vivonne Bay

Vivonne Bay

When Sydney University evaluated 10,000 beaches across Australia (rating them on things like clarity of water, privacy and cleanliness) it was only natural that Kangaroo Island's Vivonne Bay would come out tops. But with so many long, curved, sandy beaches - perfect for beachcombing, picnics, surfing, swimming or fishing - it's a wonder the Island's other beaches didn't receive similar recognition.
