A tranquil and gorgeous place, Kangaroo Island is just 13km off the coast of South Australia. As name suggests, the island has abundance of Kangaroos.
How to reach?
A 2-hour drive can take you to Cape Jervis from Adelaide and then take a ferry to Penneshaw. You can also take a bus from Adelaide and then take the ferry and pick up a cab from Penneshaw. You can even fly from Adelaide to Kingscote and take a cab.
Here is a list of things you cannot miss once on Kangaroo Island
1. Seal Bay Conservation Park
A 40-minute drive from Kingcote, this southern coast of the Island is home to seals and sea lions. You can watch the seals resting in the sun and nursing their young after feeding for three days at sea. Ride the waves onto the beach or take a guided tour, you are sure to make some memories you will cherish forever.

2. Vivonne Bay
With its long curved sandy beach, it is a perfect location for picnic, beach combing, or fishing. The turquoise waters are a treat for surfers. A safe harbour is the base for cray and game fishing boats.
Yep, the water at #VivonneBay really is this blue! This beautiful spot on @authentickangarooisland in @southaustralia has a long sandy beach that's ideal for picnics, sunbathing, fishing and surfing. But if electric blue water and powdery white sand aren't your thing, take your time to explore the #KangarooIsland producers' trail instead - stock up on fresh oysters, hand-made cheeses and organic Ligurian honey. We'll take both, please! Photo: @jolyonbird A post shared by Australia (@australia) on Jan 16, 2016 at 12:12pm PST
3. Southern Sky
Living in the city might deprive you of some of the wonders of nature. One such thing it the beautiful night sky. On clear nights you can see the stunning southern sky. Another great nocturnal experience is the Hanson Bay Sanctuary Tours. The tour offers fully guided 90 minute walks during which you can discover and learn about the nocturnal animals of Kangaroo Island.
4. Flinders Chase National Park
If you are a nature lover you don't want to miss the Flinders Chase National Park. One of Australiaâs largest parks covering 74,000 hectares of untouched bushland, the park is home to a variety of fauna. Drive slowly through the park and you might get to see some great wildlife sightings.
Have been spending the last few days travelling around Kangaroo Island and loving it. #kangarooisland #flinderschasenationalpark #westbay A post shared by Matt Potter (@minutiadesign) on Apr 23, 2017 at 3:02am PDT
5. Remarkable Rocks and Admiralâs Arch
Your trip to the Kangaroo Island will be incomplete without a trek to one of the island's signature landmarks, Remarkable Rocks. Home to an impressive natural formation which appears to be a cluster of precariously balanced boulders, many of the rocks are covered by golden orange lichen. Watching the sunrise or the sunset from the Remarkable Rocks may leaves you mesmerised but then don't forget to vist Admirals Arch. Another nature's beauty, you can see the fur seals frolicking in the waters or resting on the rocks.
