Kangaroo Island Weekend Escapes
Known as Karta Pintingga – literally meaning the Island of the Dead in local Kaurna language – it might surprise you to know that South Australia’s Kangaroo Island is the country’s third largest island after Tasmania and Melville Island. An oasis of native bushland, wildlife and dramatic coastline measuring 509km, the raw and rugged landscapes of Kangaroo Island are a nature-lovers playground. Well known for its incredible beaches featuring gorgeous clear water and breathtaking scenery, tracing the best bits of the coastline alone will keep visitors occupied for days on end.
Yet on top of its natural beauty, Kangaroo Island also boasts strong local pride, a friendly community and plenty of local business to make a trip truly special. From local wines to cosy cafes, chic distilleries and all the activities you could ask for, Kangaroo Island has it all! Accessible by ferry from the foot of the Fleurieu Peninsula and by plane from Adelaide, a day trip here (or even a short weekend trip) is simply not enough.
