There’s an unmistakable sanctity about Kangaroo Island. With its raw and rugged coastline, impeccably clear waters, natural wonders and wildlife, Kangaroo Island is a true playground of nature. After Trusted Travel’s recent trip to the island, we decided to pick the mind of Trusted Travel regular, Kristin, and bring you a guide to the best things to see and do there.
In part one we will look at the stunning natural beauty of Kangaroo Island and rank Kristin’s three favourite beautiful places that every visitor must see with descriptions from Kristin herself.
#3 - Stokes Bay
Recently named Australia’s best beach, Stokes Bay on the north coast of Kangaroo Island is a truly incredible place.
“We went through caves to get to the beach and it was amazing. It might have ranked higher if I didn’t almost fall over so many times. There were caves you could swim in but the water was very cold in there”
#2 - Remarkable Rocks
The most Instagramable place in Kangaroo Island, Remarkable Rocks is an impressive cluster of granite rocks in wild and wacky shapes and sizes. Sitting precariously on the clifftop, you get spectacular views up and down the coast from this place.
“It would be the best place on the island for hide and seek. I enjoyed hiding in the little holes and taking photos with all the different shaped rocks”
#1 - Admiral's Arch
As the waves pound in to Admiral’s Arch, those of us from the South Coast get some serious Kiama Blowhole vibes. A colony of long-nosed New Zealand fur seals call this place home which makes for a surreal combination of wildlife and rugged natural beauty.
“You go down a walkway past lots of seals hanging out on the rocks. You go down to the very bottom and there is a giant cave. You can see all the way through to the ocean on the other side and there are seals playing in the water and even more lying on the rocks. It was awesome!”
We will revisit Kangaroo Island in an upcoming travel news segment and take a look at Kristin’s favourite wildlife and animal experiences in this remarkable place.
