If you have not set foot on Kangaroo Island, you will most likely think that it is inhabited by kangaroos – and you’re absolutely right. However, there is so much more to Kangaroo island than what its name suggests. Kangaroo Island is also home to a number of interesting wildlife like wallabies, koalas, sea lions, seals, penguins and platypus. Its pristine environment and free-roaming wildlife makes it much like an open zoo for everyone.
