Trip 5 – The Kangaroo Island

After the Apostles I decided to check out the Kangaroo Island. Visit to this country is incomplete if you don’t check out the iconic animal – Kangaroo.

The Kangaroo Island – South Australia 

Kangaroo Island is one of the great scenic treasures just off the coast of South Australia. Much of the island is an unspoiled wilderness and must have be on top of list for anyone interested in wilderness destinations.   

More than third of Island is protected and home to Kangaroos, wallabies, possums, bandicoots, goannas, Echidnas, New Zealand fur seals, little penguins and Australian sea lions. Kangaroo Island has area of about 4350 square km. The Island has four conservation parks: Flinders Chase, Kelly Hill, Seal Bay and Cape Willoughby.

Flinders Chase: is a sanctuary for endangered species, including the ones introduced to it such as Koalas and Platypus. It has Admiral’s Arch and remarkable rock formations.

Kelly Hill: has the magnificent limestone karst caves with spectacular stalactites and stalagmites. After my visit to “Cave of Winds” in Colorado, now brave enough of explore any number of caves. It’s the best part of travelling either physically or virtually. It helps us to overcome our fear once we understand the truth behind of why and how things are the way they are. Let’s stop of philosophy lesson and continue with our tour.

Seal Bay: has a largest colony of Australian Sea Lion on the beach. The park has paid guided tours for visitors along the beach.

Cape Willoughby: has the first lighthouse to be set up in South Australia.

Due to vast spread it is impossible to see all the wonders of this island in a day or two. Just browsing through the photographs of this island makes me feel awe, if I am given a chance to visit here, I would jump on it without a second thought.
