Kangaroo Island, draped in stunning landscapes, is Australia's answer to wildlife paradise. The focal point and best asset of country's third biggest island is a natural habitat. It's where kangaroos and wallabies are hopping and skipping at every turn, where the local colonies of fur seals and sea lions laze on the rocks along the shoreline enjoying the sunshine, where koalas lazily munch on gum trees, where the whole place is full of surprises.
White sand beaches, translucent blue waters, towering cliffs and remarkable rock formations will stay in your collection of exceptional memories. The best time of a year to unwind on the island is winter season, which lasts from June to August. This is the right time to spot newborn kangaroos, koalas, and wallabies emerging from their mother's pouches.
Bring your own car, rent one or join an organized tour to marvel the spectacular scenery in the Flinders Chase National Park and pristine Seal Bay Conservation Park on a day trip. What is more, this is the off-peak season, which means that the prices go down making your stay more affordable. The visitors shrink in numbers as well, leaving you the luxury to enjoy the solitude and peacefulness and better connect with all the forms of life present here.
The only minor point is that during winter the temperatures can get to be quite low and the wind is rough, thus, bring a protective jacket.
