We are still here! We are open for business!
There is no doubt that it has been a tragic time on Australia's third largest Island with around 25% of our land mass being affected. Currently this has restricted entry to the far western part of the island, particularly Flinders Chase National Park which will remain closed until further notice. Outside of the Park all roads are open but this may change. When on the Island simply please heed any road closure signs that may be posted.
The key message is that the majority of the Island is unaffected and is open for business.
If you have current reservations and bookings or are contemplating visiting Kangaroo Island there is still so much to see and do. And visiting at this time is actually a critical component of our recovery process.
Our community is open for business and eager to share its treasures; touch nature at our iconic Seal Bay, Raptor Domain, and KI Wildlife Park. Swim with the dolphins or visit our wineries in Kingscote, Cygnet River and on the Dudley Peninsula who always have a glass at the ready. Our world famous Kangaroo Island Oysters are available for tasting at American River and can be finished off with the most wonderful honey ice cream from close by. Experiences like the Eucalyptus Distillery, quad biking and fat biking are still available.
Our main townships: Penneshaw, American River, Kingscote, Parndana, Stokes Bay, Emu Bay on the North Coast through to Vivonne Bay on the South Coast remain unaffected. The same can be said for everything to the East. The Kingscote precinct and the Dudley Peninsula has a lot to offer.
So don't be a stranger - come and discover our beautiful Island, sample our way of life and chat with our passionate community. We have wineries where the grapes are grown in the most pristine environment on earth, we have our own brewery, so you're guaranteed not to go thirsty, and last but not least there is Kangaroo Island Spirits who just won a major prize for one of their Gin's in London!!
So yes, we had a devastating fire but we still have over 250 kilometres of pristine coast and beaches for you to enjoy..
