Kangaroo Island Tour Guide:
Kangaroo Island is one island that has just about everything that a tourist to Australia would want. Miles and miles of shimmering white sandy beaches dotted with penguins, sea lions and Fur Seals and not many humans; lush green inlands where koalas and kangaroos roam freely and in abundance; historic lighthouses, including some of the first in Australia; coastal geographic landmarks; the nation’s best gourmet food and wine, amazing watersport experiences and much more.
Encounter Australian Sea Lions, leafy sea dragons, southern right whales and their calves; explore the wilderness under sea at close range with a diving expedition that reveals historic wrecks, colourful reefs and countless schools of fishes; surf on gigantic waves; and fish for your food or for leisure at the Encounter Marine Park.
Meet the New Zealand Fur Seals at the Finders Chase National Park; watch them play, waddle to the sea and interact with each other from the rock platforms of the Admirals Arch, a natural rock formation along the Kangaroo Island coastline; and check the rock pools under the arch for fur seal pups. You can also enjoy a tour of the historic Cape Borda Lightstation and visit the Remarkable Rocks for exquisite views of the coastline and excellent photo-ops.
To the south of the island, the South Kangaroo Island Marine Park with its iconic Seal Bay Conservation Area offers you amazing opportunities to see the Australian Sea Lions sunning themselves and playing with their pups in their natural habitat – not a recreation or a cage. Alternatively or additionally, head to the Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary for a rendezvous with koalas, kangaroos, Tammar Wallabies, Possums and Echidnas not to mention the abundance of birds in their natural homes.
