Ahhhh… Kangaroo Island! My home away from home! Kangaroo Island is my quick fix for a wildlife and nature craving when the business of Adelaide piles up. I have now toured the island numerous times and every time I visit the beauty and uniqueness of the island astounds me. Wildlife is in abundance, with Brush-tailed possum, Tammar wallaby, Kangaroo Island kangaroo, Echidna and Koala everywhere! Be extra careful when driving on Kangaroo Island, especially at night (if you can, avoid it). In areas such as Flinders Chase National Park, native wildlife is everywhere! Seal Bay, one of KI’s gems is home to the third largest breeding colony of Australian sea-lion in the world. Walk the bay with tour guides and get up close and personal with these beautiful endangered animals. Further down into Flinders Chase National Park we find Admirals Arch, a spectacular ocean cave that looks over the horizon and is home to a large colony of New Zealand fur seal. The bird life is another perk of the island with a sum of 267 birds calling the island and surrounding waters home. A truly special experience is catching a glimpse of the rare Glossy black-tailed cockatoo feeding on a local She-oak tree. There are under 400 of this subspecies of cockatoo left in the world and they are all found on Kangaroo Island. The landscapes of the island bring it home for the win! Around every corner we see unbelievable coastlines, bushland and ancient earth that creates the wild backdrop of KI.
