    looking far ahead on kangeroo island

    This island is about 155km and 55km wide. 3rd largest island of Australia which was discovered in 1802 by Matthew Flinders. Part of the island is conserved in National park and thus, making an ideal place to see wildlife.

    Clean waters off kanger island are excellent for fishing and diving sites (abt 50 shipwrecks).
    Traditional industries are wool, cereal crops and fishing. And of course, tourism is also an important industry on the island.

    Places to visit on de island itself:
    1) Seal Bay
    2) Flinders Chase National park
    3) Remarkable Rocks
    4) Cape du Couedic Lighthouse
    5) Admiral Arch
    6) Rocky River
    I took a day tour starting from 7am till 10.30pm.
    Tour route is like this:
    -Take a 2 hr coach from Adelaide to Cape Jervis (port).
    -45mins of ferry ride to reach the island.

    Total cost: AUST$181 per person.

    cheese with Seals!

    Seal bay is part of Kangeroo island tour. It was certainly a very good experience in getting up close and personal with the seals.Watching them dashing along the waves as they come on shores.

    I was there in July..and it was ...freezing cold at the beach!!

    Oh, not to forget to obey the instructions from the rangers!

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    KANGAROO ISLAND- Australia's third largest island, 13km off the mainland and serviced by ferries from Glenelg and Cape Jervis. A southern shoreline exposed to the pounding of the Southern Island and a north coast of protected inlets, bays, unspoiled beaches and crystal clear water. Home to colonies of sea lions and fairy penguins on the southern coast. The island is occupied and has a small farming community producing speciality foods. Fishing is excellent and seafood is plentiful.
