10 extraordinary experiences in Kangaroo Island, South Australia

KIPicture: Australia

Sometimes you go to places where you discover how little you are in this big wide world amidst nature and other beings. Kangaroo Island in South Australia was that kind of place for me. Just as we were decided where to head first whilst in Australia as a couple…we decided to choose this off-the-beat destination at the far end of Australia. Knowing that it is Australia’s third largest Island after Tasmania and Milville Island, we decided to stay longer to explore it to the max. And mind you it is bigger than you think! It is also the best place for a road trip, with almost 1600km of roads on the island, nothing can’t get better! It is almost three years down the line, but still cannot forget those long endless ( and almost empty) roads, virgin beaches, Koalas & Roos in the wild, playful Seals by the beach and happy locals.

These are just few of the many moments that will always make me nostalgic about Kangaroo Island, South Australia:

  • Seeing Kangaroo’s, Koala’s, Seals, Echidna’s  in the wild for the first time ever:untitled-5726-2
