Places To Visit On Kangaroo Island



Eucalyptus Distillery


And no itís not a form of alcohol unfortunately, its oil extracted from the leaf of the eucalyptus tree, this is the last working distillery in South Australia. They offer tours and have many products for purchase made from Eucalyptus oil including shampoo. Itís believed that aboriginals used Eucalyptus as a form of medicine.

Sheep Dairy


Well I think some one made a mistake with this one; I thought it was cows that you milked not sheep. But seriously they do make some great Cheese and Yoghurts; I would say the Haloumi on a barbeque would be my favourite. They also have gourmet baskets with a range of their productís, this would go great with that chicken and Champaign you are having on the beach later.

Fresh Seafood


If you are after fresh seafood well there are only two places on the island for that and they are both in Kingscote. They have a large variety of locally caught seafood, so call in and try some fresh Kangaroo Island seafood.

Wineries


There are several wineries on the Island and the number seems to be growing. If you like your wine, well you might want to allow a whole day to see them all, it can take a while tasting.  A better idea might be visiting one or two a day while you are touring around, they are spread through out the Island.
