Kangaroo Island National Park
What’s on at Kangaroo Island National Park this month…….
You have not experienced Kangaroo Island if you have not been in Winter. Its lush greens, enchanted skies and rainbow spotting sets the scene for a season that brings out all its beauty.
Winter on Kangaroo Island is a great time to take up one of the spectacular walking trails on the Island and then retire with a cozy fire in your cottage with the earlier sunsets.
Kangaroo Island has a well-earned reputation as an amazing spot to visit, but with so much to do, it’s hard to know where to start….
Thanks to Parks South Australia please see below the 7 most sought after trails
Baudin Conservation Park
This lesser-known park is only 10 minutes’ drive from the ferry port at Penneshaw. If you’re lucky you might spot tammar wallabies, little penguins or endangered glossy black cockatoos.
Cape Gantheume Conservation Park
Take a self-guided drive along D’Estrees Bay, marvel at the abundant wetland birdlife and rugged coastal scenery and stay in a campsite by the beach.
Flinders Chase National Park
This iconic park is a must-see when you visit KI landmarks, as it’s where you’ll find the world-famous Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch.
Lathami Conservation Park
This petite park is dedicated to the careful nurturing and protection of glossy black cockatoos. These beautiful birds can only be found on Kangaroo Island.
Lashmar Conservation Park
A favourite for beach lovers, Lashmar Conservation Park adjoins the long sandy beach at Antechamber Bay. The park is an ideal location for swimming, fishing and birdwatching and is just a short drive from Cape Willoughby Lightstation.

Discover the magical underground world of Kelly Hill Caves and admire the ornate cave decorations. For the bold and inquisitive, there are also adventure caving tours that allow you to crawl through the underground maze.
Seal Bay Conservation Park
Seal Bay has been home to an Australian sea lion population for thousands of years. Take a guided tour into the heart of the sea lion colony or set your own pace on the boardwalk.
