Kangaroo Island, or KI as the locals like to call it, is 13kms off the coast of South Australia and can be reached by ferry or plane. The island is 155 km long by 55 km wide, with over 540 kms of spectacular coastline. There’s no public transport on the island so you’ll need to bring or rent a car, or join a guided tour to get around.
Known as Australia’s own ‘zoo without fences’, Kangaroo Island is a wildlife hot spot. You can get up close to Australian native animals like kangaroos + koalas at KI Wildlife Park or see the little penguins at Penneshaw Penguin Centre.
