    Flinders Bay has a great lighthouse, fur seal observation and the Admiral’s Arch. All of these sights are worth an hour of your time.

    Seal Bay was an amazing place to observe sea lions. You will want to do this with a guide so that you can get an up close viewing along with great commentary. If you don’t have a guided tour booked, you can go out on the broad walk but it’s quite far from the sea lions.

    Had a great couple of hours here, the presenters were knowledgable and interesting. Nice to see some local birds up close. We arrived for the afternoon slot which wasn’t too busy, so there was plenty of hands on contact with the birds.

    Candice our buggy tour driver was very friendly and pleasant. She explained things very well and managed to grab the kids interest from our 4yo, 11, 12, and 13yo children. Ask for Candice and you won’t be disappointed!

    We had the perfect day for this and enjoyed it so much. Our main focus was seeing the seals and we sure did do that. The whole family love seeing the baby seals swimming in their pools and we got to see them from not very far away as well. They were absolutely adorable and I loved the fact that humans couldn’t harm them. Admirals arch was very impressive and was actually home to many sleeping seals. The walk down was lovely seeing the enchanting views and beautiful wild flowers. I highly recommend this for animal people and families.

    Great experience! Easy walk and lots of koala sightings. Guide was great. Saw also birds, kangaroos, black swans. We were there with our 23 months old and it went smoothly. Learned about the 2020 bushfires and how nature recovers! Very interesting.

    We had visited here on a previous trip to KI and both supported them following the terrible wild fires and adopted an adorable koala called Blue. We returned to see how the island and islanders were recovering and, again, this was one of the highlights of our stay. We took advantage of the private tour and, although it is not cheap, it offers the opportunity to interact with the animals and learn all about them on a one to one tour, so it is well worth it in that you learn so much and can ask any questions you like. The young man who took us round was extremely well informed and we were able to go where we wanted and stay as long as we wanted with the animals which particularly interested us. We also visited the 'hospital' cabin where a young joey rescued from its dead mother's pouch on the road side was being reared and prepared to return to life in the wild.
    These folk had to face the wild fires head on but did not abandon their charges and played a huge part in the rescue effort. They also help run an across the island rescue service for any animals found injured or sick. As such, they are to be congratulated and supported. Well done, Dana & Co and all the best to little Blue in his retirement!

    Stunning. Was one of the scenic highlights of our 5 days stay on Kangaroo Island. Well worth the effort of driving down to the south west corner of the island.

    Being gin lovers we had to to visit this distillery and it did not disappoint.
    The setting is just beautiful providing plenty of shade, a food truck to ease those hungry bellies.
    The gin tasting paddle is the way to go. Recommend trying it without the tonic first and then add once you have sipped each one.
    Allow a couple of hours to enjoy the atmosphere.

    Probably the easiest lighthouse to get to when visiting Kangaroo Island. Well maintained attraction, huge lighthouse and lovely walking trails. The cottage gardens are lovely, even though they have many snake warnings. Lovely informative staff.

    Unfortunately we went on a rainy day, but having been many times before it was still of interest to our French friends who wondered why they were scrambling through rocks and sand to get to this hidden beach. On a sunny day it is perfection. Luckily the Cafe in the car park was a haven on such a miserable day.

    Enjoyed the range of honey and stocked up for the trip home. The staff member on duty was not really interested which was disappointing. Highly recommend the drunken drone honey wheat pale ale and looking forward to trying the mead I bought. Worthy of a visit.
