Kangaroo Island Wildlife
Australian sea Lion at Seal Bay

Endangered Glossy Black Cockatoo
Our Kangaroo Island Tours from Adelaide are great for viewing native Wildlife
in the wild. Kangaroo Island has the distinction of being one of the best places in Australia to view native wildlife in it's natural habitat,
Kangaroos, Koalas, Platypus, Tammar Wallabies, Echidnas, Glossy Black Cockatoos, Australian Sea Lions & New Zealand Fur Seals are often
seen on tour.
There are a couple of reasons why wildlife is so easy to spot on Kangaroo Island;
1. There are no natural predators of the animals on the island and there
haven't been since aboriginal people ceased living on the island approximately 10,000 years ago, the wildlife over this time has adapted
to a life of no predators and thus are a lot less fearful of humans, it is possible then to get very close to the animals
in their natural habitat
2. There are few non native introduced species of animal living on Kangaroo Island. Foxes and Rabbits which live on mainland Australia
(after being introduced from England in the 1800's) have had a disastrous effect on native wildlife and are believed to be responsible
for numerous extinctions, the foxes kill and the rabbits compete for food. This is clearly demonstrated with the survival of the Tammar Wallaby
. 1000's of Tammar Wallabies thrive on Kangaroo Island where there are no Rabbits or Foxes, but just 16 km away on the mainland they have been extinct for nearly 90 years.
Kangaroo Island Destinations

Sea Lions, you are also able to walk on the beach with the Sea Lions getting within metres of them in their natural environment, it feels
just like being in a David Attenborough documentary! It is a truly amazing experience. Tours Kangaroo Island

What Lonely Planet Says about Kangaroo Island
"An antidote to urban grit, Kangaroo Island is deservedly popular - it offers the state's best opportunity to view and interact
with a plethora of Australian native wildlife. Kangaroo Island's isolation from European diseases and feral species has greatly protected
the island's fauna. And this is accessible in a stunning natural environment where development is yet to really take off (even some
major roads are gravel). Located 13km off SA's coast, its wild, rugged coastline shelters beaches edged with turquoise seas, while
the interior contains native forest and bush, 30% of which is maintained as conservation or national parks. Flinders Chase National
Park is a highlight, with wildlife galore, forests and dramatic coastal scenery.
While here, be sure to try the island's local produce, including fresh seafood and marron (a freshwater crayfish), honey
produced by a pure strain of Ligurian bees, jams from indigenous fruits, sheep-milk cheeses, local wines and eucalyptus oil."
About Travelwild Australia
We are an Australian based tour operator who began running small group Adventure Tours for backpackers and active travelers on
Kangaroo Island in 1998. We started with a 2 day 4WD Camping Tour, and today are proud to offer over 30 high quality small group
adventure tours from Kakadu and the Kimberley in the north, to the Outback and Ayers Rock in the centre to Kangaroo Island in the South.
Travelwild Tours are either "Travelwild Operated Tours" run by Travelwild, or "Travelwild Partner Tours" run by our partners who
share our passion for Small Group, Active Adventure Tours.
Either way your tour will be led by a professional local guide, you'll visit out of the way places the busses and crowds don't go,
you will have quality camping equipment and good food. The small groups allow plenty of time to have fun and explore.
Join one of these tours and we guarantee you will have an experience you'll never forget as you camp, hike, swim and canoe
your way through the Australian Wilderness.
Small Groups, 4WD Vehicles, Local Knowledge, Adventure Activities and Active People is quite simply a recipe for a great tour,
suprising few tour operators understand this simple fact.
- Small Groups. Our small group Australian tours are kept small
because they allow for better access to remote areas, creates less environmental impact and creates a much better tour dynamic. The reality is that
big bus groups suffer because guides are too busy organizing a large group rather than guiding. If you want to meet other people and fun as a group, keep it small!
- 4WD Vehicles. They may not be the most comfortable vehicles around, but if you want to
get the best spots in Australia without the crowds you need to divert down some of our 4WD only dirt tracks. If you are prepared
to rough it, then you'll be rewarded.
- Local Knowledge is vital if you expect your guide to know what they are doing. Each Travelwild Tour is
owned and operated by local individuals who live and love where they tour.
- Adventure Activities are the best way to experience pristine wilderness areas,
hiking, swimming, climbing, bush camping and canoeing (on selected tours) gets you into the bush and away from the crowds.
- Active People, most passengers who travel are between 18 and 39, come from all over the world, lead active lives and enjoy the outdoors,
(most groups are around 50% males and females). If you want to have fun on tour, it's important you travel with people you can relate to.
