Kangaroo Island is one of Australia’s dream destinations, with amazing animals, enchanting national parks and windswept coastlines making up the wondrous landscape!

Whether you’re lazing about with the seals at Vivonne Bay, traversing the stunning Flinders Chase National Park or tasting some of the island’s world famous produce, the only thing wrong with a visit to Kangaroo Island is that it never seems long enough…

To put it simply, yes! You can visit Kangaroo Island right now. Kangaroo Island is welcoming tourists for all its exciting adventures, with the breweries to the beaches to the national parks all open for business!

These unforgettable experiences await you on your adventure:

Vivonne Bay

You may not have known it, given all the hoorah about Australia’s northern tropical beaches, but the southern coast is also home to some of the country’s most sublime shorelines, one of which is KI’s dazzling Vivonne Bay.

Vivonne Bay is KI’s quintessential picnic destination, with its white sand and clear blue waters making it an awesome place to relax and catch a refreshing dip.

What’s more, just around the corner at Seal Bay you will discover (duh) the island’s fur seal population, frolicking around like it’s absolutely no one’s business!

Flinders Chase National Park

Flinders Chase National Park is one of Australia’s most spectacular, and possibly the most enchanting on Australia’s southern coast. Here you will find a plethora of geological structures and wildlife that encapsulates the wonder of Aussie nature, and you are sure to remember your visit to its wild coastal splendour for some time.

First, there is no surpassing the Remarkable Rocks, a series of bizarrely-shaped and stacked boulders that look more congruous in a Dali painting than on the Aussie shoreline.

Next, there is the beguiling Admirals Arch, a majestic natural rock arch aeons-long erosion carved. Finally, keep your eyes peeled for any number of magnificent Aussie animals in the park, from the kangaroo to the koala, echidna and any number of birds and reptiles!

Swimming with dolphins

Dolphins love KI’s Mediterranean-clime waters, ducking, dodging and weaving their way around the fresh waters year-round. You can learn all about these legends of their sea, their conservation and, of course, have the opportunity to swim alongside them in their natural habitat!

It’s a unique experience that tops off what is sure to be a magical getaway on the wonderful Kangaroo Island…
