Adelaide, just like food and wine, even offers nature and wildlife galore! It’s famous ‘Kangaroo Island’ is no hidden gem in the world. Kangaroo island promises abundant native wildlife, dramatic coastlines, secluded beaches, brilliant seafood and a small friendly population!

Join a ranger on the beach at Seal Bay conservation park for a walk among a colony of Australian sea lions. You can also watch from boardwalks as the animals sun themselves in the dunes and frolic in the surf. Or watch the pelicans being fed, a Kingscote tradition that is as endearing as it is entertaining.

The landscapes on Kangaroo Island will never be forgotten. Don’t miss the Remarkable Rocks, the precariously balanced, beautifully coloured formations perched high cover crashing waters: Kelly Hill Caves, an ideal spot to try adventure caving, or Admirals Arch, a natural formation carved from water. Sandboard down the dunes of Little Sahara or find your own stretch of paradise - there’s no shortage of long, curved, white sand beaches, including Vivonne Bay and Stokes Bay.

Explore one of South Australia’s youngest food and wine regions and savour fine wines along with the coastal views. Or follow the Kangaroo Island Farm gate and cellar door trail to taste the unexpected from Andermel Marron, goat’s cheese, honey from the local Ligurian beers and gin from Kangaroo Island native juniper berries.
