At 155km long, Kangaroo Island is not much smaller than Bali and the road network is simple, so plan your itinerary to tackle one slice at a time.
Southern Ocean Lodge is one of Australia's most stunning properties: a 21-suite architectural gem above Hanson Bay that delivers fine foods and wine alongside impeccable hospitality and surrounds. Kangaroo Island Lifetime Private Retreats offers three luxury holiday homes on the island, each with dress-circle sea views. For more rustic digs, escape to the simple life at Hanson Bay Cabins, with its six huts nestled between ocean and wildlife sanctuary; or book a night in a restored lighthouse keeper's cottage at either Cape Borda, Cape Willoughby or Cape du Couedic.
One-third of Kangaroo Island is protected national or conservation park and there are few better places to view Australia's unique animals in the wild. Tiptoe past touchy Cape Barren geese at Flinders Chase National Park, watch sea lions bodysurfing at Bales Beach, walk beneath an arbour of koalas (there are 13,660 on Kangaroo Island) and keep eyes peeled for some of the island's 200-plus bird species.

Since Ligurian bees were introduced in the 1880s they have tirelessly produced unique honeys from the island's eucalypts and wild flowers.
