  • wonderful place with tons of animals. book the night tour early -- it sells out quickly. the koalas start moving down in the early evening.  more »
  • Lovely park with animals in their natural environment. Take your time to wander around the park & see koalas, wallaby's, birds etc. We were entertained by a koala 'grunting' at his friend, very funny!  more »
  • We found Kangaroo Island (KI) to have a natural, and as yet unspoilt, beauty, with many diverse and interesting attractions. The places we visited on our SeaLink coach and ferry tour were made even mo...  more »

  • The highlight of Kangaroo Island. For $9 you could stroll around the estate, searching for Koala hiding in the Eucalypt trees. We saw 15 in 1 hour including 2 about 7 feet up in the trees. The staff were really friendly and lunch and coffee in the cafe were good, wholesome offerings. For $20 you can sponsor a koala.
  • Koalas & Echidna's by the score, absolute magic. Didn't stay, just popped in. Quick walk (at our leisure ) . Brilliant
  • Saw Koalas snoozing in a natural habitat, lunch was nice,meat pie an veggies. The walk was excellent for older people an those with walking difficulties.
  • The guide was knowledgeable and informative. As would be expected for this type of animal encounters, it all depends on the cooperation of the animals. We had a good experience, more animals would always be better.
  • Nice chance to spot koalas, kangaroos and even ekidnas. A must stop if you want to see the wildlife of kangaroo island

Where to stay in Kangaroo Island

Although most of Kangaroo Island remains relatively underdeveloped in a commercial sense, you'll find lodgings that include everything from spacious suites to economical hostels in communities like Penneshaw and Kingscote. The most expensive accommodations on the island, private cottages and beach houses near the water generally require a two-night minimum stay. For something more flexible and less expensive, consider one of the local campgrounds, many of which offer powered and unpowered sites, as well as cozy log cabins ideal for couples and families with kids.
