Attractions

Kangaroo Island is home to some of the best beaches in Australia. In 2003, Vivonne Bay (located on the Island's south coast) was voted Australia's best beach and you can often enjoy a spot in solitude with the beach stretching more than 20 kilometres! Other popular beaches on Kangaroo Island include Pennington Bay and Hanson Bay (located on the South Coast) and also Snellings Beach, Stokes Bay and Emu Bay (located on the North Coast). In addition to Baudin Beach, there are several safe swimming beaches located on the Dudley Peninsula including Antechamber Bay, Island Beach and Penneshaw.

Kangaroo Island's Dudley Peninsula features an array of different attractions for visitors. Three wineries are located in close proximity to one another (Sunset Winery, Dudley Winery and Chapman River Winery). The Peninsula also offers several safe swimming beaches including Baudin Beach, Island Beach, Penneshaw and Antechamber Bay. Cape Willoughby Lighthouse and several conservation parks are also located on Dudley Peninsula. Penneshaw features a golf course, museum, supermarket and various cafes and restaurants.

Kangaroo Island boasts some of Australia's most abundant fishing grounds accessible by boat and from on-shore. Species include King George Whiting, Garfish, Tommy Ruff, Salmon, Mullet, Flathead, Snapper and Squid. If you are looking for a local to assist in your fishing endeavours, be sure to visit Bob and Jan (who live across the road) and they can assist with scheduling a tour or hiring out gear.

Flinders Chase National Park (located on the south-west coast of the Island) showcases some of the most stunning scenery you'll ever come across. Formed over millions of years, Remarkable Rocks are naturally sculptured formations atop a granite outcrop which you can walk around, under and over! Admiral's Arch was also formed naturally, leaving a large arch in the rugged cliff face. The Arch is a great vantage point to spot New Zealand Fur Seals. Visitors often stop by Kelly Hill Caves on the way to Flinders Chase to explore the fascinating and extensive underground limestone caves.

Kangaroo Island is renowned for producing some of the finest quality honey, wine, cheese, olive oil, lavender and eucalyptus products. Emu Ridge Eucalyptus, Emu Bay Lavender Farm, Clifford's Honey Farm, Island Pure Sheep Dairy (plus the Island's numerous wineries) offer visitors the unique experience of trying produce right where it is made.

Wildlife is abundant on Kangaroo Island and it won't be long until you spot your first Kangaroo, Wallaby, Possum or Koala. There are various places you can interact with and view native wildlife up close. Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park (situated in the Island's centre) and Raptor Domain (south coast) provide unique and memorable experiences for visitors hoping to see and interact with Kangaroos, Koalas, Birds of Prey, Echidnas, Wombats and reptiles (plus many more).
