Day 17-19: Kangaroo Island, The Landscape


More Photos & Videos

The landscape of Kangaroo Island was just as impressive as its abundance of wildlife. Like so many other popular destinations in Australia, the island was lined with some beautiful white-sand beaches and surrounded by crystal clear waters.

But about two weeks before our road trip, the island and its national parks were ravaged by some of the worst bush fires they’ve ever had, burning down 20% of the island, most dramatically affecting Flinders Chase National Park where we had booked our campsite.



Fortunately, the fires were under control by the time we arrived and although most of Flinders Chase was closed, we were able to visit some of the more spectacular areas.



At the southwestern tip of the island is a natural wonder known as the Remarkable Rocks. These colourful granite rock formations were naturally sculpted over the last 500 million years and are best described as… well… remarkable! It was a photography playground.

We even found some spectacular scenery underground, within the system of caves underneath Kelly Hill Conservation Park:
