I visited kangaroo Island and saw lots of wildlife. I would suggest staying a couple of nights in Penneshaw and whilst there doing a penguin talk and walk. Then you could do a two day exploration of the island. I loved going to Flinder's Chase National Park. There I saw some really friendly kangaroos. I adored it at Admiral's Arch. I saw two possums. I watched some seals on a beach and walked close to them. I hope that you will have a lovely time on wonderful Kangaroo Island. Tours can be booked at backpacker hostels in Adelaide. If taking a car the rural roads are bumpy.

The wildlife park in the middle of the island is cute. you can feet kanagaroos and get in touch with koalas. take the dirt street along the north coast. little sahara is funny, if you never did befor, go sandboarding! admirals arch at flinder chase park is also nice to see. we loved kangaroo island!

Exploring Kangaroo Island offers endless opportunities to see native Australian wildlife, such as Kangaroos, Koalas, Echidnas and Sea Lions in their natural environment. The island is the third largest of Australia, and its major feature is the fact that it has never been overrun by the major introduced species like rabbits or foxes. Some mainland species like koala have been introduced, though, and pose a certain problem. About a third of the island is protected by National Parks. Unluckily (for the traveller), the ferry to the island is quite costly (about A$ 300 for 2 persons and a car), and accomodation is limited and should be booked early. Camping is possible, though, in several locations. Have a gr8 trip! Glen

im not sure about kangaroo island itself but i hear it is very beautiful, i have been on a fishing charter just of the island, and i had a great time, the weather was fantastic, the veiws were awsome, and i caught heaps of fish. if u like fishing i suggest getting a charter that runs from the same place the ferry to kangaroo island leaves from and ask for the charter captain Ben. kangaroo island looke dvery beautiful from the sea, and i remember reading somewhere u can hire bikes and ride around the island to see all of the beautiful scenery. i hope this isnt too late for you :D

Just back, and if you're looking for a tour try surf and sun. They were great. Also, if you are a HI/YHA member and book thru the YHA you can get a discount on your tour price.
