Kangaroo Island is a nature lover's paradise, so be sure to bring comfortable hiking shoes for exploring the island's scenic trails and wildlife reserves. Bring your swimmers for a dip in the crystal-clear waters and a good windbreaker jacket as it can get breezy in parts. The rest will depend on the time of year you plan to travel.
Kangaroo Island is a haven for wildlife and nature enthusiasts, offering a plethora of exciting activities to keep boredom at bay. Take a guided tour to see the adorable resident penguins at the Kangaroo Island Penguin Centre, or go sandboarding down the dunes at Little Sahara. Animal lovers can get up close and personal with kangaroos, koalas and wallabies at the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park, and don't miss your chance to visit the stunning Seal Bay Conservation Park and get a glimpse of adorable sea lions in their natural habitat.
The excellent news is that there’s no bad time to visit Kangaroo Island as every season has its appeal. If you’re here for the sun, sand and snorkelling, summer (December to February) is a dream. Autumn (between March and May) is the perfect time for warm days and cool nights, while winter (June to August) is for rugging up and getting cosy by the fire. Spring sees the island covered in wildflowers so is arguably the prettiest time to visit.
Visit a eucalyptus distillery, go hiking or biking, learn about bees at Island Beehive, say hello to some resident sea lions, go whale watching, do a spot of wine tasting, slurp oysters from the source, go fishing, hang with koalas, treat yourself to a massage, sample local produce – the list goes on and on!
