Where to See Wildlife on Kangaroo Island

One of the most diverse communities of native wildlife in Australia, Kangaroo Island is a must-see destination for nature lovers. Don't miss the following spots for your best chances at spotting native Australian species and more.

Flinders Chase National Park

Covering most of the western side of the island, Flinders Chase offers a number of bush walks likely to yield sightings of Kangaroo Island birdlife. Keep an eye out for wallabies, echidnas, and the elusive platypus. As an added bonus, dolphins and whales can be spotted from the ocean-facing lookouts within the park.

Admirals Arch

This stunning rock formation inside Flinders Chase features a colony of New Zealand fur seals that hangs out on the rocks around the base of the massive arch.

Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary

Head to Hanson Bay on the south coast to set out on a koala walk. The sanctuary also offers a guided nocturnal walk during which you might see opossums and bats.

Seal Bay Conservation Park

A short way down the coast from Hanson Bay is the Seal Bay Conservation Park, home to Australian fur seals. You can even walk out onto the beach among them on a guided tour.

Clifford's Honey Farm

Clifford's Honey Farm, set near the island's main township of Kingscote, has a working hive of the rare Ligurian bee on display. At dusk, head nearby to see the resident little penguin colony return to shore.
