The Basics

Famous for its natural beauty and culinary culture, Kangaroo Island is a popular South Australia vacation destination. While it’s possible to take in the highlights on a full-day tour from Adelaide, multi-day Kangaroo Island tours offer the chance to explore further afield. Most tours explore the island’s wildlife reserves and visit natural landmarks such as the Remarkable Rocks, Admirals Arch, and Vivonne Bay. It’s also possible to venture off-road on a Kangaroo Island 4WD tour or sample the island’s local produce on a food and wine tour.

Kangaroo Island Shore Excursion Scenic Trail Tour
One of the best wildlife tours we have been to. The tour guide knew exactly were to look for wildlife and she would stop so that we can see them from up close. She would also explain every detail about the wildlife, birds and nature of the kangaroo island.

Small-Group Kangaroo Island 4WD Tour from Adelaide
We signed up for the small group tour, and when we were picked up by large bus, filled with others, we were nervous. Upon reaching kangaroo island, we were greeted by Pablo. There were a total of eight of us on the tour. We loved it! Pablo was extremely knowledgeable. They provided unlimited, refreshments, tea, and fruit and a beautiful picnic lunch. We loved everything we saw. We highly recommend it.

Small Group Shore Excursion at Kangaroo Island
We had a fantastic time touring Kangaroo island. Luca was accommodating given there was a delay at getting to kangaroo island due to unpredictable windy weather. We made it off the cruise ship and Luca was waiting for us. We loved seeing remarkable rocks, admirals arch, lighthouse and the wildlife and had a nice BBQ. Luca was very informative and we highly recommend this tour.

We really enjoyed the Kangaroo Island Food and Wine Hop-on Hop-off Tour. Our guide Nikki was absolutely wonderful - her knowledge of Kangaroo Island was amazing. She really went out of her way to make sure we had an enjoyable day. Would highly recommend this tour - especially if have Nikki as your guide/driver.

What a fantastic trip out on the beautiful coastline. The boat is clean and comfortable. Our Captain and his leading hand Bonnie were exceptional, learnt lots of history and information on the marine life. With a unique entry back into the marina!

When to Get There

Summer (December through February) is the most popular time to visit the island. This is also the best time to spot wildlife because it coincides with the breeding season. Due to mild year-round temperatures, it’s also possible to visit during winter to avoid crowds and find lower prices on tours and accommodations.
