Escape to this unspoilt island
The Island itself is a veritable paradise, though not in the traditional sense – there’s no hope of 365 days of sunshine, nor is the island home to brilliant beaches filled with bronzed bodies. Instead, Kangaroo Island finds paradise in a rugged coastal beauty and an abundance of gourmet food.
The economy of Kangaroo Island is primarily agricultural and, coincidentally, so are many people’s motivations for visiting. The locals have worked the land and seas for years and as such know the secrets for producing some of the country’s finest gourmet foods. Everything from fresh fish to hand-cured cheese to golden bush honey to organic vegetables are in abundance. You’re guaranteed to overindulge at every meal, but it’s absolutely worth it.
To work off all those extra calories, head out and explore the unspoiled vastness of the island. There’s bushland to battle through, cliffs to wander across, wetlands to explore through and beaches to meander along. Each environment is home to its own selection of fauna – everything from sea lions to koalas call this wilderness home, creating a diverse environment just waiting to be explored. The culinary and natural beauty of Kangaroo Island is certainly tough to surpass.
