Explore Australia’s third largest island – Kangaroo Island, 112 km (70 miles) south-west of Adelaide! A number of day and two-day tours are available of the island, which are the easiest means of getting to and around Adelaide’s offshore wilderness.

Experience Kangaroo Island’s diverse wildlife, including sea lions, seals, possums, koalas, echidnas and, of course, kangaroos.
