Kangaroo Island Attractions



Flinders Chase National Park


Here you will find a variety of things to do, there are many walking trails with in the park including the platypus walk, not sure of your chances of seeing a platypus but itís worth a look. Admirals Arch is the furthest point of the park and is worth the look, you will see New Zealand Fur Seals in their natural environment and the arch it self is amazing the way it has formed from erosion over thousands of years.

Penguin Tour


There are penguin tours nightly, tours are held at Kingscote and Penneshaw, each location has two or three tours per night so donít miss out. Tours start after sunset so maybe grab a bite to eat then head on down. Remember do not take flash photography or shine a torch at penguins, this can blind them.

Seal Bay


This is a great tour and most people that come to the island will see this, you can walk on the beach among the sea lions and be as one. There are hundreds of them along this beautiful coast line, if you happen to miss the guided tour there is a board walk you can stroll along and you will be able to see them on the beach from a distance.

Lighthouseís of Kangaroo Island

 

There are three main light houses on Kangaroo Island, Cape Willoughby, Cape Du Couedic and Cape Borda. At each of these locations you will also find the old light keepers cottages; they are available for holiday accommodation. Cape Willoughby has light house tours and a museum, Cape Borda has the lighting of the cannon at 12.30 pm every day and also has a museum and tours.

Cape Du Couedic has walking trails and you will also find Weirs Cove here, the remains of the old jetty that use to support the old flying fox. This was used to bring goods ashore from waiting ships below. There are also a few lookouts were you can see fur seals on the rocky outcrops below and it is just a sort drive from there to Admirals Arch.


Kelly Hill Caves


This is a great spot to sit back and relax, they have a great outdoor area  with free barbeques that is set amongst tall gum trees . So take a tour first or after but if youíre looking for some where to sit back and take a breather there arenít many places better than this.
