Kangaroo Island

One of my favourite places in my home country is Kangaroo Island. It’s Australia’s third largest island and is a truly unique wilderness experience, with its spectacular landscapes and incredible wildlife.

KANGAROO ISLAND KANGAROO

About one-third of Kangaroo Island is designated national park or reserve area, including the entire western end (which comprises Flinders Chase National Park and Ravine des Casoars Wilderness Protection Area). Here, you’ll find two of the island’s biggest drawcards: Remarkable Rocks and Admiral’s Arch. From a distance, the Remarkable Rocks resemble a herd of animals, but up close, they show themselves to be an amazing collection of naturally sculptured boulders balanced haphazardly atop a smooth granite dome. In terms of wildlife, there’s opportunity to get up close and personal with New Zealand Fur Seals, sea lions, Little Penguins, pelicans, koalas and kangaroos. If you want to read more about Kangaroo Island, check out my article that was published by Jetstar magazine – Where the wild things are. Otherwise, enjoy the photos below.
