Observe the wildlife
The island was named after its population of Australia’s favourite oversized mammals, kangaroos. If you’ve never seen a kangaroo before, they are enormous and graceful marsupial creatures. A coastal wilderness walk can extend for kilometres: walk in peace with nature and marvel at the local animal life. Wallabies, blue wrens, magpies, and pelicans make their home in this area, making Kangaroo Island an animal and bird watcher’s paradise.
