Escape to an island you will never want to leave - Let Yourself Go. It’s the perfect place to disconnect from the world and reconnect with what and who is truly important to you.

Kangaroo Island (“KI” to the locals) is a short flight from Adelaide or a ferry ride from Cape Jervis. There’s so much to do on this island. Explore untouched bushland, fish on pristine beaches, see the wildlife, go on an eco tour or charter.

The Southern Ocean

Wildlife surrounds Kangaroo Island. The ocean is teeming with fish, sea lions and little penguin colonies. Stand on the shore in the cooler months and watch migrating southern right whales and their calves.

This place is like a zoo without fences, with rare bird life, tammar wallabies, short-beaked echidnas and plenty of kangaroos and koalas.
