General Information about Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island is Australia's third-largest island, after Tasmania and Melville Island. The biggest town on Kangaroo Island is Kingscote. Kangaroo Island is one of South Australia's most popular tourist attractions, attracting over 140,000 visitors each year.

There is plenty to do on Kangaroo Island – See pink pelicans wheeling through the sky at Reeves Point and sea lions lying on the rocks at Cape du Couedic. Seal Bay is home to a colony of Australian sea lions that can be observed from a boardwalk or up close with a ranger. Watch packs and pairs of little penguins make their nightly pilgrimage to the shore in Penneshaw or from Kingscote Wharf. Fish from the historic jetty at Emu Bay or join a fishing tour from American River.

Nearly half of the island has never been cleared of vegetation and a quarter of it is conserved in National Parks, Conservation Parks, and five Wilderness Protection Areas.
