Day 8 DownUnder- Kangaroo Island

June 17, 2013 — 3 Comments


Day 8 DownUnder entailed a trip from Adelaide to Kangaroo Island- an island just off the coast of South Australia, covered in national parks and wildlife reserves. I had missed a trip to Kangaroo Island on my first visit to South Australia, and was definitely excited to get the opportunity to see it this time around.

As the photos will show, it didn’t disappoint. Kangaroo Island- a rugged wilderness, sculpted by nature and time, it’s incredible local wildlife unique to that anywhere else in the world.


Kangaroo Island- THIS is why I LOVE Australia…
