Kangaroo Island

There’s an unmistakable purity about Kangaroo Island. With its raw, rugged coastline, impeccably clear waters, bushland and wildlife, this part of South Australia is known as nature’s playground. Arrival prompts instant relaxation. Take a deep breath – you’re on island time.   

Follow the road less travelled and discover unique wildlife, mouth-watering food and beverages, gorgeous scenery and a laid-back lifestyle.  

Top local eating and drinking destinations include Millie Mae’s Pantry in Penneshaw, where fresh fare is lovingly sourced and prepared. Relax under established fruit trees and leave with supplies from the pantry store. Enjoy fresh seafood from the Oyster Farm Shop at American River and discover local honey production from the world’s purest strain of Ligurian bees at Island Beehive in Kingscote. 

Call in to Kangaroo Island Spirits in Cygnet River – half an hour’s drive from Kingscote – to see how native botanicals sourced from around the island are distilled to create some of Australia’s most awarded gins.  

Wine is also produced locally: Islander Estate, False Cape Wines and Dudley Wines are all worth a visit. Ready for a beer? Check out Kangaroo Island Brewery.
