  • This was exceptional. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and made sure we were able to see and understand all kinds animals.  more »
  • There's the Koala walk. Some trees are red flags. Koalas, which are still not easy to see then sit in these trees. Also, one encounters many other animals with little luck.

  • Despite a day of intense rain, we got to see lots of koalas roosting and passed the trail, in a large green expanse, lots of kangaroos. The price of the Park is relatively low (I think $9 for adults and 4 children) and worth the stop by

  • 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
  • You'll get to see a few koalas very high up in an eucalyptus plantation until your neck hurts. We walked through the wallaby trail and saw nothing interesting. Doesn't feel wild at all. Maybe the night tours are better
  • Beautiful peaceful place amazing wildlife....
  • Was great fun trying to find the koalas in this lovely tranquil sanctuary.

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.
