South Australia is one of the least known states in Australia as most tourists head toward the east coast and experience cities such as Melbourne, Sydney and parts of Queensland. One of the hidden gems in South Australia however is an island called Kangaroo Island.
Kangaroo Island is actually the third largest island in Australia and is located off the coast of South Australia at the entrance to Gulf St Vincent.
The island used to be occupied by aboriginals but they moved off the island and settlers moved in during the 19th century.
Kangaroo Island is one of South Australia’s most popular tourist attractions and has over 150,000 visitors each year. There are seals and penguins to see as well as national parks and mountain ranges to climb. Lots of activities for everyone so make sure you visit.
