A Foodie's Delight

Step foot on Kangaroo Island, breathe in the fresh sea air and take in the natural scenery, the abundant wildlife and tranquil beaches. Now *this* is a holiday destination! Just a 30 minute flight from Adelaide, or 45 minute ferry ride from Cape Jervis in South Australia, Kangaroo Island offers a range of outdoor activities in its pristine environment. The 28 vineyards and artisan food makers will tantalise your tastebuds with their produce, enhancing what will already be an incredible experience.

To experience the local wildlife of Kangaroo Island at its best, surprisingly winter is the ideal time to book your getaway. It’s the season for newborn kangaroos, koalas and wallabies, while mass groups of fur seals and sea lions soak up the sunshine on the rocky shoreline. Make sure you pack some winter woollies though as daytime temperatures hover between 8 - 15°C and the cold winds can pick up.

Four wheels are essential! Kangaroo Island is a destination you really need a car in order to experience its beauty in its entirety. It takes 2 hours 20mins to drive from the east coast to the west and, although there are plenty of tours, nothing beats cruising around with your own tunes as you take in the scenery. If you choose to fly to Kangaroo Island, make sure you book a hire car well in advance so you don’t miss out!
