What are the best things to do in Kangaroo Island?
Go to Flinders Chase National Park
One of the top attractions for travellers booking flights to Kangaroo Island is Flinders Chase National Park. It's teeming with incredible rock formations (like The Remarkable Rocks), a massive seal colony and breathtaking coastline. The entrance fee is $11 AUD, and the park is open every day from 9am to 5pm.
Explore Seal Bay
More than 1,000 Australian seal lions call Seal Bay home. It's one of the few places in the world where visitors can get up close with a wild colony. If you want to see these creatures, buy return flights to Kangaro Island and join a guided tour for $35 AUD per person. Each tour lasts about 45 minutes and leaves at set times. While you can book in person on the day, you might have to wait if all the spots for the next tour are full.

Book your accommodation early
