Kangaroo Island Visitor Guide : 2018-2019 Kangaroo Island Visitor Guide
Kangaroo Island beckons all year round. With four distinct seasons, you’ll get a vastly different experience throughout the year. Sun yourself on the picture-perfect beaches in summer, enjoy a brisk scenic walk in autumn, keep warm with a cosy fire in heritage cottages in winter and taste the fresh seasonal produce in spring. SUMMER Kangaroo Island has a beach to suit every mood, from wild, crashing waves and beach fishing on the south and west coasts to tranquil bays in the east. Surf, swim, snorkel and bring the kids to run wild in the abundant space on offer. This is the perfect time for a family camping trip. AUTUMN After the hot summer months, the Island is in full production mode – so sample its wide range of fine produce and products. It’s warm enough to enjoy the day outdoors then cosy up at night with a selection of your favourite Kangaroo Island purchases. WINTER In winter you’ll find waterfalls, lush pastures and bushland, teeming with wildlife and birdlife to discover. Book a picturesque little cottage and curl up by a roaring fire with a good read and bottle of local wine. Winter on Kangaroo Island is made for romance. SPRING This is the time when the Island’s farming community puts out the welcome rug, native plants blossom and wildlife goes into overdrive. Enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, birdwatching, kayaking, fishing and more. You can even put a spring in your step by running a marathon!
