“Did the Rock patrol Adelaide to Alice tour this past July and IT WAS WORTH EVERY PENNY! My group size was just right that there were enough new faces to meet without feeling like number. Shoutout to Andrew for being an awesome guide and go out of the group's way to drop me at the airport for my outbound flight, fellow group members for the vibe, and all the places that the tour took me to. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an awesome experience in the Outback”

Kangaroo Island - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

If you are a nature enthusiast with a penchant for off-the-beaten-path destinations, then a trip to Kangaroo Island should be a no-brainer for you. Nestled off the southern coast of Australia, his often-overlooked getaway is home to some of the most exquisite plant and wildlife on the planet, which means a holiday to Kangaroo Island will be an unforgettable and thoroughly rewarding travel experience

Tour Highlights

  • Remarkable Rocks are otherworldly granite formations perched on top of an unusual dome of lava. They are one of the most famous natural symbols of the island and an ever-popular tourist spot.
  • Seal Bay Conservation Park, located about 50 kilometers from Kingscote (the largest town on the island), is an animal sanctuary that hosts one of the largest sea lion colonies on its sandy shores.
  • Cape Borda Lighthouse sits on top of a dramatic cliff in the Flinders Chase National Park. This landmark was named after Jean-Charles de Borda, a French mathematician, physicist and sailor.
  • Little Sahara is a two square-kilometer sand dune located in the southern part of the island. Here, you can rent toboggans and boards and try your hand at sand-surfing.

Travel Tips

  • Temperatures in Kangaroo Island do not vary greatly from season to season, so this destination can be visited throughout the year. However, for observing wildlife, the most popular season to visit is during Australian summers, from December to February.
  • For penguin watching, you can head over either to Penneshaw or Kingscote, both of which operate guided tours to their coastal habitats.
  • Kangaroo Island can also be great for swimming, although the season only runs in peak summer months (December to February). You will find the most beautiful beaches stretching on the northern coast.
  • If you are keeping your eyes peeled for Australia’s exotic wildlife, keep in mind that animals tend to be most active at dawn and dusk.
