Places in Kangaroo Island
Kangaroo Island is one of Australia’s great natural wonders. It is often referred to as the ‘zoo without fences’ where you can see Australian animals in their natural habitat. See a colony of sea lions basking in the sun at Seal Bay, playful fur seals at Cape du Couedic in Flinders National Park and spot little penguins at dusk from Kingscote or Penneshaw.
Its spectacular coastline provides stunning scenery, excellent swimming and surfing beaches and rugged cliffs. Walk amongst amazing rock formations, Remarkable Rocks, huge weathersculpted granite boulders. With over 480 kilometres of coastline, you can stretch out in your very own secret spot.
The island has a growing reputation as a food and wine region. Dine on fresh seafood, taste the locally produced wines, hand made cheeses, honey and delicious yoghurt from a sheep dairy farm.
Accessible by Cape Jervis or by plane from Adelaide, you can visit for a day or stay on the island to thoroughly explore its natural beauty.

Monument To Soldier Settlement Scheme
The Sir Cecil Hinks plough is a symbol of the land clearing that took place in late 1940 and early 1950 on Kangaroo Island. Sir Cecil Hinks was Minister of Lands during the major period of operations.
All that remains of the camp is the gantry that was used to unload the trucks and all the equipment as it arrived and some concrete blocks where the workshops were.
The former Kangaroo Island Research Centre is now home to forestry operations on Kangaroo Island and houses a pine log milling plant. Housing is privately owned. The former administration building has been converted into Timber Creek Lodge tourist accommodation.
