Kangaroo Island is an adventure island destination in Australia

The Kangaroo Islands in Australia have been considered as one of the world’s last refugee islands which are left as they were. These islands which are situated off the southern Australian coast make an ideal vacation destination for the travelers who wish to enjoy the sun, surfing and all other leisure activities by the coast. The leisure water sport activities include fishing, swimming, scuba diving sailing etc. Just like most island destinations Kangaroo Islands are a place where you can experience solitude and isolation by the ocean.

And as a matter of fact the area of this island is almost seven times that of Singapore. Kingscote is the capital town of Kangaroo Islands. This is one island where you will find wildlife in abundance with seals basking lazily on the beach and koalas lazing away in gum trees. Apart from which you can spot kangaroos, echidnas, goannas, wallabies etc that thrive on Kangaroo Islands.

Tour operators in Kangaroo Islands operate a range of tours whereby you can relax and enjoy the scenic drive across the islands while tour guides give you a good deal of information about the place. You can choose from either coach tours or four-wheeler drive tours that pick up passengers from the ferry terminal, the airport and even from their respective hotels. Hiking and bike riding is available for those interested.

Kangaroo Island boasts of a number of national as well as conservation parks that house relatively unique animal and plant species besides offering a glimpse of the scenic coastlines. The Kelly hill conservation park – that is known for its limestone caves, the Flinders chase national park – that is known for its walking trails, the Cape Willoughby conservation park – that houses south Australia’s first lighthouse and the Seal bay conservation park – famous for its sea lions are the four renowned major parks on Kangaroo Island.

Is it OK to fake it while travelling?

Sure, one of the best parts of travelling is the freedom to reinvent and reinvigorate yourself. But what happens if you take it too far and pretend to be someone you’re not? It’s a risky game. While most of us don’t masquerade as sportsmen to get free drinks from short-sighted, drunk soccer fans, most travellers at some time pretend to be someone else when they hit the road.
