"Nature is all around us here. We have a really strong sense of familiarity with it. Our guests really get into the sounds, smells, tastes of fresh local food, the feel of the cool ocean breeze on your face, and readily accept the invitation to slow down."
Craig Wickham, Exceptional Kangaroo Island

The Adventure Begins with the Journey

Getting to this tranquil haven is the beginning of the Kangaroo Island experience. The adventure begins with either a 45 minute ferry crossing or a 30 minute flight. Once here, you’ll discover the pace is unhurried, the environment unspoilt and the scenery breathtaking. There is an immediate sense of unwinding and relaxing into the natural order – you’ve discovered island time!

Island Character

The Island’s population hovers at 4,500, all of whom are linked by their very tangible and individual connection to the natural world that is pure Kangaroo Island. With their isolation from the mainland comes a legacy of determination and ingenuity that continues to permeate and inform their lives. It is these traits that see local farmers, fishermen, tradesmen, artists and shopkeepers turn to tourism, offering wildlife and marine tours, accommodation and food and wine experiences. Their welcome is genuine, their knowledge invaluable and their love of Kangaroo Island infectious.

A Bed with a View

Stay in a heritage lighthouse or in 5-star luxury, camp under the stars or in the bush, in a cottage on the beach, or in a B&B with a local host. There are small hotels and cliff top guest retreats on the list too.

In Every Season

The Island’s Mediterranean-style climate means there are four distinct seasons here and the island has something different to offer in every one. To truly understand the lure of Kangaroo Island, it must be experienced. Visit for a minimum of four days and then return to experience more seasonal offerings of this exceptional island life.
