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. Nestled amongst native bushland, Kangaroo Island Wilderness Retreat is a wildlife hub, boasting daily visits from Tammar Wallibies, Brushtail Possums, Koalas, Echidnas and copious bird species. Only a short walk from the retreat, seals and platypus live in their native habitats.
