South Australia is the wine and seafood capital of Australia, where the Murray River meets the sea and the gateway to Outback South Australia. The Flinders Ranges are unique and spectacular.
Kangaroo Island (“KI” to the locals) is a short flight from Adelaide or a ferry ride from Cape Jervis. You won’t find wildlife and wilderness to rival what you’ll discover on KI anywhere else in Australia. Wildlife surrounds Kangaroo Island. The ocean is teeming with fish, sea lions and little penguin colonies. Stand on the shore in the cooler months and watch migrating southern right whales and their calves. This place is like a zoo without fences, with rare bird life, tammar wallabies, short-beaked echidnas and plenty of kangaroos and koalas.
Being in South Australia, the food & wine here is pretty good too!
