Welcome to Exceptional Kangaroo Island. Down Under Endeavours has been working with this family-owned touring company for many years, and a day out with one of their incredible local guides is a highlight of any trip to Australia!
If you want to enjoy extraordinary wildlife encounters, excellent local produce, and warm hospitality, this large Island off the coast of South Australia is a destination without peer. With nearly one third of the island set aside for conservation and few introduced plants and animals, biologists refer to Kangaroo Island as “the closest to what temperate Australia was like at the time of European settlement.”
The island’s diverse landscapes provide habitat for sea-lions, fur seals, endemic kangaroos, wallabies, koalas, echidnas, platypus, goannas, 260 bird species (many rare or endangered), 4 species of possums, bandicoots, and even whales. Except for whales, which pass through in winter, these are present all year round.
Enjoy all of this with one of Australia’s leading tour operators—small group or luxury private 4WD tours which promise good food, good wine, and wildlife in the wild.
