Welcome to Kangaroo Island
Discover Australia's third-largest island
Kangaroo Island is about 70 miles southwest of Adelaide and is Australia's third-largest island, after Tasmania and Melville Island. The island caters to all kinds of travellers; adventurists, beachcombers and outdoor lovers will all enjoy visiting the island alone, with a loved one or with the family. Surfing, fishing, swimming, bushwalking and canoeing are just a few of the popular activities on Kangaroo Island.
Self-driving around Kangaroo Island (in a campervan or towing a caravan) is a great way to see the island, and a ferry service from the mainland makes it possible to bring your own car. It's also possible to journey around the island as part of an organized tour. The climate on Kangaroo Island is very similar to that of the Mediterranean, cool mild winters with warm summers, though it never really gets too hot or too cold. Summer is the most popular time to visit the island.
