ALERT Kangaroo(s) Crossing!
Watch out for KANGAROOS!! They hop out in front of you (while you're driving) without any prior warnings. Why do they call this island KANGAROO ISLAND?! (I've no clue either)
KILL IT - you'll have kangaroo meat for dinner (just kidding!) Anyway, you'll still need to pay for the damage to your vehicle
Do watch out for other "locals" too apart from the kangaroos.

KEEP WILDLIFE WILD!! Feeding is strictly prohibited in the National Parks - they'll die in hunger in the wilderness if visitors keep spoon-feeding them!!
DO NOT FEED THE KANGAROOS (of course others too)!! They'll be back for MORE. And if you refuse, they will ATTACK!! They are NOT as GENTLE as you think!!
Watch out for bandits!
These bandits raid the trash outside your campsite.
This is a bushy-tailed possum. Notice how he has his tail wound around the latch of the trailer, and how he has torn the bag open with one of his little sharp-clawed paws. (You may have to click the photo to see this last detail--we caught him in the nick of time!)
Keep your garbage bag inside something the possum can't get at or else you'll just have to pick it all up from the ground in the morning.
The rugged storm-swept coast of Kangaroo Island has claimed several ships and dozens of lives
At Windmill cove there are graves of some people who didn't survive a ship wreck there.

Don't get caught in a sting operation
The original colonies of honeybees brought onto K.I. have given rise to large colonies of feral bees. They may be anywhere, as you can see from this photo of the sign near one picnic area.
