Kangaroo Island

(6,500+ reviews from top 30 attractions)
Wildlife Areas Nature Historic Sites
Abandoned by Aborigines a few thousand years ago, Kangaroo Island attracts over 140,000 visitors each year. Flinders Chase National Park is a big draw for nature gazing, so bring your hiking boots and camera to capture imagesĀ of koalas, kangaroos, and other protected wildlife. One species plays an important role in the economy, namely the Ligurian honey bee. These little workers produce some of the best honey in the world. The amount of recognition that the bees have brought the island is ironic considering the first settlers made their living off the hunting and export of whales and seals. Nowadays, these two species are protected and live peacefully along the shores of the island paradise.

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 andĀ families with kids.
