Kangaroo Island was discovered by Matthew Flinders in 1807. He named it because of huge numbers of kangaroos they encountered. KI is about a two hour drive and a half hour ferry trip from Adelaide. You’ll need much more than a day to explore KI, it’s Australia’s third largest island. You will discover secluded beaches, jagged sea cliffs, abundant wildlife as well as a local food and wine experience that will keep the gourmet travellers amongst us satisfied.
It wasn’t until recently that we had the chance to head to KI. The bushfires of 2019 devastated the tourism industry on the island. The government subsidised the ferry in an attempt to get tourists back on the island and #bookthemout, we knew this was our chance to get over to KI.
To describe our experience I have made a video. I hope you enjoy watching it.
