Kangaroo Island  South Australia

Kangaroo Island, Australia's third largest island, is a great place to spend the weekend – there’s something about climbing on board the ferry which makes you leave all your worries behind on the mainland. The ferry goes from Glenelg or Cape Jervis south of Adelaide and in no time you will see the rugged scenery of the island. Alternatively take a ferry Wirrina to Kingscote.

The ferry docks at the main settlement on the island, Kingscote, a quiet fishing village on Brownlow Beach.

Part of the mainland until about 9,000 years ago, the island and its flora and fauna are uniquely protected from the ravages of introduced species such as foxes and rabbits.

There are several national and conservation parks, the largest of which is Flinders Chase National Park with its eucalypt forests, the Remarkable Rocks and Admiral's Arch. New Zealand fur seals are found in this area.

Seal Bay Conservation Park is home to a colony of Australian sea lions and Cape Gamtheaume Conservation Park preserves the rugged and exposed southern coastline of the island.
