Kangaroo Island keeps calling us back, time and time again. We can’t get enough of the Island’s breathtaking landscapes, natural wildlife, adventurous experiences and friendly locals. With so many amazing experiences to choose from, it’s hard to know where to start — but here are a few of our faves to add to your list.
For a truly delicious tasting experience, visit KI Spirits — home to some of the best gin, vodka and liqueurs to come out of South Australia! This boutique distillery uses locally sourced ingredients to showcase the Island’s unique flavours, and while you sip on them you get to learn all about the distilling process and history of the first gin distillery in Australia. Book a table in the Gin Garden for a tasting, try your hand at a cocktail masterclass, or even blend your own gin… it’s an afternoon well spent, in our opinion!
WILD FOR WILDLIFE
Kangaroo Island is home to a myriad of wildlife experiences, but Seal Bay would have to be at the top of our list! You can view the sea lions and learn a little more about these curious creatures on a guided tour, or you can set your own pace as you traverse the 900 metre boardwalk. There are some fantastic vantage points along the way to take in the view and observe the famous inhabitants in action. For a different perspective, visit the Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch, two spectacular geological formations that offer breathtaking views of the ocean and its wildlife.

For an action-packed adventure, we recommend a visit to the Little Sahara Sand Dunes for a touch of sand-boarding or surfing. It’s a wild ride and perfect for the thrill-seekers and young at heart! Choose from a buggy tour, a fat bike tour or a koala walking tour — there’s something for everyone. The unique landscape lends itself to adventure, but is equally appealing as a spot to just relax in the sun.

Have you ever frolicked in crystal blue waters with dolphins? We have, and we can’t stop talking about it. This is a truly unforgettable experience that you MUST try at least once in your lifetime. A guided tour with KI Marine Adventures takes you to the best places to get up close and personal with these friendly creatures in their natural habitat. This is one experience you won’t forget — the dolphins are magical and this experience really makes you feel at one with nature.
We love Kangaroo Island and we never tire of finding fabulous new things to do each time we visit. So pack your bags, book your trip and get ready for a holiday that will blow your mind!
