Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island is a true wilderness. Over 30,000 overseas visit the Island each year and it is the third most asked about destination in Australia.

Covering 4,500 square kilometres the Island has a population of around 4,000 people, many of whom are sheep, cereal and eucalyptus farmers, fishermen, tourism operators and providers, apiarists, grape growers, artists, writers, glassmakers, sculptors and retirees.

Kangaroo Island enjoys mild wet winters and dry summers. Tempered by the ocean, particularly on the coast, maximum summer temperatures rarely exceed 35 degrees and very cold nights are unusual. Average temperature maximums range from 13 to 15 degrees in August to 20 to 25 degrees in summer, with February being the hottest month. The wettest month is July.
