DUE SOUTH AUSTRALIA | KANGAROO ISLAND | www.duesouthaustralia.com.au | 149 KANGAROO ISLAND VISIT Is it any wonder that the world has fallen in love with Kangaroo Island? With its pristine beaches, abundant seafood, outdoor adventures and animal encounters, Kangaroo Island is in a league of its own. A ustralia’s third largest island is visible from the mainland, but seems like a million miles away from the everyday world. This is a place which invites adventure and experimentation – whether that’s visiting a colony of sea lions, tasting some sheep’s cheese or trying a spot of kayaking, hiking or sandboarding. Back in 1836, Kangaroo Island, known locally as KI, was chosen as the site for a capital city for the new state of South Australia. The idea was abandoned after only three years and KI became a hide-away for runaway convicts, sailors and sealers. They were replaced by hard working farmers and fishing families. Kangaroo Island is a marvellous combination of wilderness, manicured farmland, pristine coastline and strange looking rock formations. Many visitors will simply want to explore the Island by themselves but be warned, it’s much larger than it looks. Fill up with petrol before you leave either of the two main settlements (Penneshaw and Kingscote). Alternatively, join one of the many organised tours which are now available on KI. Most tours will pick you up from your accommodation, the ferry terminal or airport; alternatively fully escorted tours leave from Adelaide – arriving on the Island by ferry or plane. The Island’s rural pace and lack of traffic will soon relax the mind and soul. Go fishing, try a bit of wine tasting, meet some local wildlife or sample one of the many gourmet foods, such as marron, sheep’s cheese, sea fresh oysters or Ligurian honey, which are now bringing people here from around the world. Whether you are fascinated by natural rock formations such as Admirals Arch or Remarkable Rocks, looking forward to getting a lungful of fresh ocean air, want to immerse yourself in the local food scene or dream of a romantic getaway, you’ll find it all (and more) on Kangaroo Island.
