Kangaroo Island Wildlife

For visitors who don’t want to miss seeing the unique Kangaroo Island wildlife, guided tours are probably the best option. With more than 250 species of birds, 600 plus Australian Sea Lions and New Zealand Fur Seals, plus kangaroos, wallabies, and everybody’s favorite, the koala, you’re sure to see something on your own.

However, tour guides know where to take you to see all these animals, and more. Depending on the time of year, you may get to see penguins nesting in their natural habitat along the craggy island shoreline. If you keep your eyes open, you may even see a platypus or echidna.

Visitors have claimed that the experience is like walking through a zoo without walls.
