  • Welcome to Kangaroo Island.

  • Australia's third largest island located about 112 kilometers southwest of Adelaide.

  • Kangaroo Island is a wildlife paradise and has some of the best beaches in Australia.

  • You can access KI in two ways.

  • Fly onto the island or take your car across on the ferry which goes multiple times a day.

  • Here's how to have an amazing three days on the island.

  • Day one, drive down the South coast and go sandboarding on the massive sand dunes at Little Sahara.

  • You can rent a toboggan or sandboard and slide down sand dunes which go as high as 70 meters above sea level.

  • It's like going to the snow without being cold.

  • Continue down KI's iconic coastline and stop to see the Australian sea lions at Seal Bay.

  • You can watch them from the boardwalk or get up close on the beach.

  • Stay overnight around Flinders Chase National Park and spend the next day exploring the park.

  • The park is the best place to spot KI's diverse wildlife and has some amazing views.

  • Must visits are Admirals Arch, Cape Du Couedic to see the New Zealand fur seals and the Remarkable Rock formation.

  • The best way to experience the park is to go hiking.

  • There are many trails which take you through KI's diverse landscape and allow you to see wildlife up close.

  • You'll definitely see KI natives such as kangaroos, wallabies, and echidnas.

  • And if you're lucky, you might even see a koala.

  • Next day, it's time to explore KI's North coast which has the island's most spectacular beaches.

  • Definitely stop by Stokes Bay.

  • It may not look like much from the carpark, but follow the signs and crawl through the rock formations to get to one of the island's best beaches.

  • Next up, take a slight detour inland and stop by The Marron Cafe for lunch for some local KI marron.

  • Check out Emu Bay on your way before you end up back in civilization in KI's biggest town, Kingscote.

  • Kingscote is the commercial hub of KI and is home to a large colony of pelicans.

  • There are pelican feedings at the wharf every day and for five Australian dollars, you'll get to see dozens of pelicans come in for a feed.

  • Now rest up in Kingscote and make your way back to the mainland the next day.

Welcome to Kangaroo Island.
