Returning to Kangaroo Island after 20 years, Caroline Beck once again delights in the proximity of abundant wildlife and the enduring coastal geology...
Kangaroo Island, 15 kilometres off South Australia, near Adelaide, sounds like a theme park, yet this little-visited wildlife haven has such charm, you're tempted to keep it to yourself. And kangaroos, of which there are many, aren't the half of it. When so much of the continent's Dr Seuss-like fauna has been pushed to the margins or even become extinct, on KI - abbreviations being another Aussie trait - you can abandon your binoculars and just look.
Caroline Beck travelled as a guest of Exsus. A 10-night trip to Kangaroo Island costs from £1,755 per person including three nights in a five-star hotel in Adelaide, room only, four nights at Seasscape Lodge, full board, all international and domestic flights, and car hire on Kangaroo Island.
