Would recommend a night tour, beautiful beach at Stoke Bay but you have to walk through gap in the rocks to get to it, well worth it.
Admiral arch and Remarkable Rocks a must.
Park at least 3 days to complete everything. Travelling takes up a fair amount of time and the original scheduled time for nature watching will definitely be prolonged.
Beautiful island with lots of wildlife to see.
kangaroo island is a great paradise to animal lover. so Drive 40 slowly after 5pm as animal may jump out anytime.
drive fast may kill them. no GPS so do some study and bring your map write down the name of the road . because there has not enough sign board of direction. nearly an hour or two you may see the signboard
remember to bring a Australia adaptor, GPS, internet no accessible IS MOST AREA. only in Kingscote internet works in city centre.
It is exotic island, lots of wildlife park to visit. Renting a car there is a must, from attraction to attraction is very far.
Really lots to see:sea view,seals,remarkable rocks,and etc. Really good to stay: in a sea view inn Really wonderful to recall: a friendly hotel,a good sightseeing
The Seal Bay is a must go attraction to see the looked lazy seals take rest on the beach. The pelican feeding man and the Kingscote penguin tour are also interesting activities that ones would not want to miss.
Go sandboarding/Quadbiking and also check out seal bay! To visit the seals at seal bay, make sure you can fit the tour timing in! I reckon they should lower the prices for the tours though.
KI is a stunning and beautiful island. It is like one enormous national park and I felt privileged to be able to visit it.
This was our fourth trip to Australia and I have never seen so much wildlife in its natural habitat. There are drawbacks - I feel that Sealink has all the transport tied up and there is no public transport on the island, petrol is expensive and hire cars cannot be driven after dark (understandably) so you need to plan your days carefully, especially in the winter months when it gets dark quickly. We stayed on the outskirts of Kingscote, in May, and there were very few places to eat on a Sunday night. Our hotel was not serving food every night so we ate at the main hotel in the centre of the town which was very good. Another night we got fish and chips which was absolutely delicious from the fish shop by the garage as you drive into town. The best value was Flinders Chase National Park (10A$ per person) which was excellent. Allow at least a day to visit. A permit is available from the information centre and then you drive on to see the Cape de Couedic lighthouse, Admiral’s Arch and Remarkable Rocks. There are lots of steps down from the car park to Admiral’s Arch but it was worth it for the views and to see the seals tumbling in the rock pools and sunning themselves on the rocks. There are also other walks available of various lengths around the park. I felt the entry to Seal Bay was expensive and had we done Flinders Chase first we would not have gone in as it was 18A$ per person to use the boardwalk or 30A$ to be allowed down on the beach. My husband did a dive in Kingscote which was very expensive compared with other dives he has done in Australia and Europe but the diveshop were very fair, warning him about conditions, and he did get to see a sea dragon which was one of the reasons we went to KI. We went to Parndana Wildlife Park but would not go there again as I felt the parrots, in particular, were kept in less than ideal conditions.
