Kangaroo Island is home to an abundance of wildlife, from dolphins, seals and sea lions to kangaroos, koalas and echidnas. Get up close to the 'locals' in Flinders Chase National Park, spot wallabies and native birds and observe the resident fur seals at Admirals Arch, a magnificent coastal grotto.
Dining at Southern Ocean Lodge is as unique as its surroundings. The island’s providores work with the chefs to source ingredients, creating menus with a local flavour and the walk-in cellar features South Australian wines. With a truly charming atmosphere, it is the perfect epicurean adventure.
With exquisite views of the oxygen-charged ocean pounding below, the Southern Spa is the ideal way to relax into a state of utter tranquillity. The luxurious treatments feature Kangaroo Island’s own natural beauty products, Ligurian honey, lavender and hand-gathered mineral salts.
Explore Kangaroo Island’s vast, ever-changing landscape and endless horizons. A tailor-made itinerary of guided experiences will allow you to discover the island’s spectacular natural attractions, the fascinating history of shipwrecks and wildlife roaming freely in its natural environment. Signature excursions include a walk among the sea lions at Seal Bay, a nature hike along the coastal cliff tops and canapés at dusk surrounded by the island’s namesake.
Australia’s seasons in most areas are the opposite to those in the UK and best visited from November to March. However, the best months to visit the Northern Territory, Kimberley and tropical North Queensland are during the dry season from April to November.
