Attractions near the Kangaroo Island Seafront Resort

One of Australia’s best beaches

Take a day trip to Vivonne Bay, recently named one of the best beaches in Australia from a study of more than 10,000 beaches by Sydney University. As the only safe harbour on the south coast of Kangaroo Island, Vivonne Bay is popular with swimmers, surfers and fishermen. The beach is well known for its long, curved stretch of sand and long-standing fishing jetty.

Turquoise waters and fine white sand are a reality here, not a cliche. Pack a picnic or enjoy a foreshore barbecue, or visit the Vivonne Bay General Store and mingle with the locals while you sample the area’s best freshly-caught seafood.

Surf the Sahara Sands

Only a 10-minute drive from Vivonne Bay, you’ll find one of Kangaroo Island’s most adventurous areas: Little Sahara. Spread over about two kilometres, this natural sand dune system features dunes of different sizes, with the largest being roughly 70 metres above sea level.

These days the dunes are heritage protected, but luckily for adrenalin junkies, sand boarding and tobogganing are permitted. Bring your own equipment or hire from one of the local traders in Vivonne Bay. For a more relaxed experience, climb to the top of the first dune for picture-perfect views of the dunes stretched out beyond.
