Kangaroo Island

Just had a great week over at KI

Kangaroo Island is one of the world's great nature-based destinations.  Think of an island with 509km of Coastline & 155km from the East Coast to the West Coast. With native bushland, wildlife, adventure & exploring. Where pristine beaches, local wines & sunsets are on your doorstep. You'll need longer than you think…

Will be updating information etc shortly…


Admirals Arch is a natural rock arch created by amazing forces of nature. It's in Flinders Chase National Park on Kangaroo Island. You can take an easy walk on a boardwalk around the cliff face. This leads you to a viewing platform overlooking the arch. The arch is sculpted by weathering and erosion from the sea over thousands of years.

Fur-seals often play among the rocks. These dark brown seals feed at sea but return to land to rest and breed. In summer, each of the large males establishes a territory with a number of females.

These next birds were all captured at Raptor Domain

Raptor Domain on Kangaroo Island displays raptors in 'In-Flight', offering a unique and entertaining experience while creating an understanding and appreciation for their role in the environment. The show is fantastic for all age groups and nationalities. The only 'In-Flight' Birds of Prey display in South Australia, it is thought by many to be the most interactive Birds of Prey display in Australia.
