Kangaroo Island is a natural paradise, filled with incredible attractions for the whole family.

Hundreds of travellers visit its spectacular scenery, but how long do they usually stay? Whether it’s a one-day tour, a weekend adventure, or a week-long escapade, Kangaroo Island has you covered.

Choosing how long to travel to the island may be tricky for some, but it all depends on how much you would like to see. With unspoilt beaches, lush bushland and Australia’s most beloved animals, finding out what is offered usually helps you decide how long you need.

Best Attractions on Kangaroo Island

  • Seal Bay

    One of the most popular attractions on the island, home to the largest seal colony in the entire world. What’s great about this place is that there are no barriers between the seals and visitors, letting guests stroll down the beach as the sea lions lounge about on the sand.

  • Remarkable Rocks

    The natural phenomenon of the remarkable rocks is a truly breathtaking sight. The remarkable rocks are a collection of massive granite boulders, ranging in shape and form. Sitting at the top of a jagged cliff top beside the crashing waves, the rocks make an iconic coastline. They have formed these unusual shapes due to 500 million years of erosion by the sea spray and weather. Photos don’t do this attraction justice as the boulders tower over you with some even hollow which allow you to walk inside them.

  • Flinders Chase National Park

    Visit the lush bushland that spans out a whopping 32,500 hectares. Flinders Chase National Park is home to extraordinary attractions including Cape Du Couedic, Rocky River, the Gosse Lands, and Cape Borda Light. Learn about the land and discover the natives that roam within!

What kind of traveller are you?

Working out what kind of traveller you usually help you decide the length you need. Are you the type of person who wants to kick back and relax? Perhaps spend a week there to space out the activities. Or perhaps you prefer digging deep into each place you visit? Maybe discover all the island’s secrets within a few days? Or would you prefer every day to be chock-full of adventure? Letting you can squeeze it all in, in just a day? Working out how to use your time efficiently and in pare with your likes will leave you with an unforgettable holiday adventure.
