Kangaroo Island is a revered wildlife utopia.  Through its isolation from the mainland, the Island has burgeoned ecologically becoming a sanctuary to countless species, many of which are unique to the region. This zoo without walls offers plentiful sightings opportunities and hands-on encounters with Australia’s wildlife.
