What are the best things to do on Kangaroo Island?
There are plenty of things to do on Kangaroo Island, too many to count, so we have collated our favourite must-see activities for you:
Explore Flinders Chase National Park - this protected area is bursting with sights so you can tick them all off your bucket list at once. These include the geological wonders of Admirals Arch and the Remarkable Rocks; wildlife encounters include a long-nosed fur seal colony and little penguins which inhabit the coastal beaches. An additional highlight is the Cape du Couedic Lighthouse, built in the early 1900s and still standing proud, overlooking the Great Australian Bight.
For a wildlife experience unique to KI the Seal Bay Conservation Park gives opportunities to get up close (but not too close) to the fur seal and sea lion colonies, which populate the beaches and can be explored at your leisure over a network of accessible boardwalks.
If relaxation is what you’re after then look no further than the secluded Vivonne Bay. Once voted Australia’s best beach, this picture-perfect area boasts gentle lapping waves and white sandy shores and with six kilometres of beach to choose from you are guaranteed some peace and quiet. Not far away you can enjoy another sandy gem - Little Sahara. This naturally occurring inland dunefield provides hours of fun, just grab your toboggan or sandboard and away you go!
Tantalise your tastebuds with a visit to one (or many) of the fabulous wineries dotted around the island. From the well-established Dudley Wines to the francophile crafters of The Islander Estate, there are cellar door tastings to suit all wine lovers.
Fancy something a little stronger? We recommend a trip to Kangaroo Island Spirits, the island's only boutique distillery creating a range of liqueurs, vodkas and their speciality gins. Pull up a chair and enjoy tastings or turn your hand to cocktail making or blending your own gin.
