  • The Tour was great. We knew before, that it would be in the dark, so we were not surprised to get some torches. Nick (the Guide) is a polite man who showed us several spots where the young penguins have their nest. He could also show us one Penguin moulting. We had luck because we two were alone with him, no others around. 13$ per adult, was absolutely worth it!

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.
