Kangaroo Island, South Australia - March 2011

Remarkable Rocks

The Tour was a 3 day 4WD tour with Kangaroo Island Odysseys which involved taking a bus from Adelaide and a ferry to KI and then flying back to Adelaide. You can also bus/ferry both ways or fly both ways. I can highly recommend KI Odysseys and definitely recommend doing more than a day trip to the island.

Kangaroo Island is 110 km south of Adelaide, the most significant island off the South Australian coast and the third largest island off the Australian coast.

Emu Bay
The size of the island (approx. 155 km in length and approx. 50 km at its widest, and 4350 square km in area) surprises many visitors. The population is approx. 4500, with Kingscote being the largest town.

The greatest attraction is its wildlife and the variety of coastal scenery, which is largely unspoilt by any development. There are sheer cliffs, rocky headlands, sheltered coves, long sandy beaches and massive sculpture like boulders at Remarkable Rocks.

Stark in such a beautiful way. I love the top photo. Was not ready for the size as I scrolled down. I expected it to be small! Wow.

Great post! I am starting to love it. In fact, I am planning to travel with my anti jet lag buddy, jetLAGFX http://www.jetlagfx.com/ and too excited to explore the island.
