Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The park is located on the western side of Kangaroo Island and takes a while to get to but well worth it. Start early and visit the Admirals Arch, and the Remarkable Rocks in 1 days. (many tours do Seal Bay also but we did that separately with the south and central part of the island). The park is a must do when visiting the island. We took a picnic lunch too. There are koalas living in the eucalyptus trees right outside the visitor center so we watched them for awhile.

    A must do if on Kangaroo Island to watch the sea lions. There is a self guided boardwalk (900m) and we watched them frolic, sleep and hang out. No need to go closer or have a private tour.

    Getting up close and learning about those beautiful birds of prey was a delightful experience. I had second thoughts about going but I'm so pleased I did. Watching the birds soar and in flight was magical esp the glossy black cockatoo. The owl and eagle (pretty heavy) hold was well worth the experience.

    Candice our buggy tour driver was very friendly and pleasant. She explained things very well and managed to grab the kids interest from our 4yo, 11, 12, and 13yo children. Ask for Candice and you won’t be disappointed!

    A must do in Flinders Chase National park on the island when visiting. There is a boardwalk which takes you down to view the seals. We viewed the fur seals on the rocks, then walked to the end (they are doing constructions to bolster the walkway) so not all the way down) but you can still see the beautiful Arch.

    Another must do in Flinders Chase National Park when on Kangaroo island. The rocks are enormous and colorful. We walked the path and then climbed up a bit. This can be challenging if you don't walk well. Great photo ops too.

    Awesome tour experience! The guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and the experience inside the cave was great. The light show is one of the best I’ve seen, an immersive experience! You must book!!

    Spectacular views of course.
    We were the only 2 people there and in perfectly calm and sunny conditions, which we guessed to be unusual. Great history to the complex and the buildings appear to be in remarkable condition considering. Last 20 odd kms of the drive in was gravel but not rough.

    We did the trail over 5 days, staying at Western KI Caravan Park. Following the fire in January 2020, the park is recovering and the walk was beautiful. Yuccas, eucalypts and wildflowers abound as nature recovers. We saw lots of wildlife, including goannas, wallabies, kangaroos. The best part was that we saw no one else on the trail, we had it all to ourselves!

    Our family had an amazing time on the bike tour of Kangaroo Island. Our guide, Dave, was incredibly caring, especially towards our son, the youngest in the group. Instructions were clear, and any minor issues were swiftly resolved with no disruption to our experience. We were thrilled to see wild kangaroos and appreciated the insightful introductions to the island's landscape and wildlife. Overall, it was a memorable adventure, made possible by our fantastic guide. Highly recommend this tour for an unforgettable experience on Kangaroo Island!

    The Kangaroo Island is a wonder itself but Luca really helped us discover it. We booked the nocturnal tour with him and saw in less than 2h kangaroos, wallabes, koalas, penguins, pelicans and opossums. The following day we booked the full day with him and experienced the encounter with the seals/sea lions, a very close one with koalas, a nice barbaque and wonderful beaches.
    Luca is a great guide, he really made the experience on the island spectacular!

    If they had more than 5*+++++ I would give it! My husband and I , with another couple are on a month long Australia/ New Zealand holiday. We booked an Exceptional Kangaroo Island tour for 2 days. Lee Berryman was our Tour guide. He was absolutely the BEST tour guide we’ve ever had anywhere! He is a true “Aussie” . He went above and beyond to make our two days so memorable. He is a local and knew the perfect locations to see kangaroos, wallabies, seas, adorable Koala Bears, the Remarkable Rocks and the National Parks. There wasn’t a site me missed. He prepared a delicious lunch and wonderful stops with picnic style coffee and tea. Kangaroo Island and Exceptional Kangaroo Island tours should NOT be missed when visiting Australia.

    We really enjoyed the adventure with Andrew to visit the dolphins today! We went on his
    open jet boat with two other family groups ( no propellers to endanger wildlife or swimmers) . Andrew was entertaining and knowledgeable about the local wildlife - we saw eagles and seals as well as dolphins. It was just amazing to swim with the curious dolphins who seemed to enjoy the the visit from the boat, checking us out as soon as we arrived in the bay and enjoying a surf on the bow wave as we left. There were young calves and maybe as many as 30 dolphins during the morning. It was a bit chilly today but there were wet suits for use and snorkels/ masks. You need to be reasonably confident slipping into the water and climbing back on to the boat- there’s a ladder. We loved it, and our fellow swimmers did too. Andrew is great fun and offers an exciting opportunity to experience dolphins in their own environment choosing to interact with visitors.
