I booked a tour from Adelaide to Kangaroo Island for 3 days (19th-21st). We were around 15 people traveling in a minibus. We could chose to sleep in swags under the stars or in rooms of around 5 people.
As I loved it during my trip in the Outback, I slept outside in the swags. The place was a lot colder than in the outback, and if it did not disturb me during the night, it was quite hard to go out of the swag in the morning ^^
Kangaroo Island was a very good trip. Because of its isolation from the mainland, the island has been protected. It is the perfect place to see animals.
We met wallabies, koalas, penguins, seals, birds... It was incredible. I will never forget being sat on this beach with sea lions all around waking up (or playing for the youngest).
At the Bird of Prey, we encountered birds of different kinds. When I was a child, I used to love kingfishers. I had the amazing opportunity to have one of them (a Kookaburra) on my arm! Seeing wild penguins was a dream coming true as well.
As you may have noticed if you follow my blogs: I love rocks. And Kangaroo Island has the Remarkable Rocks.
I will never forget this island!
