Remeber to pack a jacket for cool evenings, year round.
SUMMER - December - February
As the summer approaches, wildlife retreat to bushland habitat to shelter during the heat of the day. The land is a contrast of golden pastures against summer wild flowers and the new growth of native trees.
AUTUMN - March - May
Pastures begin to green and waterways and catchments begin to flow. Autumn is a time of transition, with some rainfall gradually providing the wildlife with fresh growth to feed on.
WINTER - June - August
Winter is spectacular with lush green countryside, flowing rivers and abundant wildlife: it's Kangaroo Island at its most appealing. Land mammals, predominantly night, dawn and dusk feeders for most of the year, frequently come out by day.
SPRING - September - November
Spring is the season of rebirth. It is a wonderful time to see the spectacular array of wild flowers, birds and mammals.
