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.

Small-Group Kangaroo Island 4WD Evening and Night Tour
We went for this trip with Luca and I can say it was a great experience. Luca is very knowledgeable and took us to the spots where we were able to see wild animals. His knowledge about KI is amazing and he was very professional. The car was very clean and Covid safe and he knew shortcuts in the wild which was a great drive.

Kids loved it and I guess every penny spent was with the experience. The host was amazing, Very knowledgeable, patient and safety of all of us was there first priority . I would definitely go back to do the quad bikes experience again.

Kangaroo Island 75-Minute Ocean Safari
Our guide/driver Illijaah (I hope I spell his name correctly :) ) was very friendly, resourceful, and entertaining. The tour respected wild lives, leaving them space and letting the curious dolphins approach us instead of chasing them. Our family really enjoyed the trip. Big thumb to our guide. Thank you.

Kangaroo Island in a Day Tour from Adelaide
It was so awesome getting to see so much wildlife and getting up close with the seals, as well as holding a koala! It was also interesting seeing all the damage that the bushfires caused in 2019. The driver/guide Scott was great and seemed to really care about the island and what hes talking about :)

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.
