About Kangaroo Island

"There really aren't enough adjectives to accurately describe the beauty of Kangaroo Island. In fact, words can almost spoil the moment. Even photos don't do this wildly gorgeous destination justice". 

Isaac Bober, Symmetry, Australia

Sea-lions basking on white beaches, koalas dozing in lofty eucalypts, pelicans soaring over shimmering lagoons... Kangaroo Island is a pristine wilderness - a place that has offered protection to substantial populations of native Australian animals, a place of beauty and a place of escape. 

Kangaroo Island (or ‘KI' as the locals call it) is also big and surprisingly diverse. If you traverse its 155km length you'll find soaring cliffs, dense bushland, towering sand dunes, wetlands and massive arcs of bone white beach.

A Destination For All Seasons

While some things never change - friendly people, cool breezes, uncrowded beaches and geological wonders - each season brings new life and spectacular changes in landscape colours.

Summer: December - February

As the summer approaches, wildlife retreat to bushland habitat to shelter during the heat of the day. The land is a contrast of golden pastures against summer wild flowers and the new growth of native trees.

Kangaroos and Tammar wallabies are seen predominantly at dawn and dusk.

Little penguins moult all their feathers at the end of the breeding season and can lose up to half their body weight.

New Zealand Fur seals give birth to chocolate-brown pups.

The Australian Sea-lion breeding season begins with pups born from January to June 2006.

Heath goannas lay 10-17 eggs in the warm, stable, humid atmosphere of termite mounds, the perfect incubator.

Koalas, wallabies and kangaroos give birth to tiny young, which are naked and blind.

Autumn: March - May

Pastures begin to green and waterways and catchments begin to flow. Autumn is a time of transition, with some rainfall gradually providing the wildlife with fresh growth to feed on.

Glossy Black cockatoos and Little Penguins begin nesting.

Black swans begin their courtship behaviour of wing-raising, neck-stretching and loud trumpeting.

Fungi start to appear on damp ground and rotting wood.

Winter: June - August

Winter is spectacular with lush green countryside, flowing rivers and abundant wildlife: it's Kangaroo Island at its most appealing. Land mammals, predominantly night, dawn and dusk feeders for most of the year, frequently come out by day.

Koalas emerge from the mother's pouch and begin to ride on her back.

Kangaroo and wallaby joeys start to emerge from the mother's pouch and feed by her side.

Echidnas form 'mating trains' where up to eight males will follow a female for around four weeks.

Waders, on their migration from Siberia, begin to arrive.

Ospreys show off to their mates in spectacular courtship fights.

Southern right whales pass the shores on their migration from Antarctic waters to the Great Australian Bight to calve.

Spring: September - November

Spring is the season of rebirth. It is a wonderful time to see the spectacular array of wild flowers, birds and mammals.

Wildflowers are in abundance. There are approximately 40 endemic floral species found on Kangaroo Island.

Eucalyptus oil is in peak production. One tonne of leaf can produce up to 30 litres of oil.

Cape Barren geese nest on top of the native iris grasses to incubate their eggs.

Platypuses lay two eggs in a burrow up to 20 metres long.

Meeting Cannavaro in Sydney!

Today I got the amazing opportunity to meet Cannavaro in Sydney, one of the most famous Italian football player ever!
I was so excited of being the first person entering the signing area and waiting for so long has been worthwhile! At the end of the day I got the original photograph of Cannavaro, a photo and a video, wishing me good luck to become the future Wildlife Caretaker in South Australia! Thank you Cannavaro for the nice time and for your precious endorsement!
