    We enjoyed walking around and looking at koalas. There are plenty to see if you walk slowly. There are kangaroos and wallabies there too, but we didn't see them as we had been to other places that day...  more »

    Fantastic experience, a must go. You are sure to see koaler, since there is a part and someone with small babies. We saw even one which jumped down on the ground to go over to another tree while we were about 10 people that looked at it. A rare experience. There are also some kangaroos and beautiful birds in the area.

    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

    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

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.
