About Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island, situated off the coast of South Australia, is unique in terms of its pristine environment, abundance of native wildlife and spectacular natural attractions, making it the jewel in the crown for the State’s tourism and premium, fresh local food and wines.

Kangaroo Island is home to 4,500 people and a prolific bird and animal species including kangaroos, koalas, ospreys, fur seals and sea lions, and echidnas, all protected in their natural habitat.

Covering almost 4,500 square kilometres, Kangaroo Island is Australia’s third largest island, with one third of its area declared as Conservation or National Park.

Its rich soils, pure rains and pristine ocean waters have inspired artisan growers to produce a bounty of unique local produce food and wines and environmentally aware fishermen to catch the best fresh seafood.
