Kangaroo Island lies near Adelaide, and it has less kangaroos than the name might suggest haha :p But it has a lot of beautiful wild nature and beaches. By ferry, we arrived at Kangaroo Island in the early morning. We took a tour where we explored the island by bus with a group of about 10 people from all over the world (including Holland!) and it was really fun! The first day we visited some beaches and saw a colony of sea lions.
We then went sandboarding which was really fun. Ward was really good at it (can you spot him in the first picture?) :p The sand dunes looked like a little desert!
After our sand adventure, we headed towards our accommodation which was a farm, where we had a nice bbq and a fantastic evening! We were accompanied by a little possum (with baby on its back!) on the roof :)The next day we got up very early and spotted a kangaroo on our way to the beach.The cliffs had some very nice caverns with beautiful stone formations. You can see the seals lying in the sun! From the lighthouse we could see our next destination: The mysterious “Remarkable Stones”:Now those are remarkable! Volcanic in origin the granite stones are shaped in the strangest shapes.The colors were amazing too, with deep oranges and reds. That’s a scene you don’t see very day! Next, we headed towards the inland parks of Kangaroo Island. They had a shop there where they sold… cat..rugs…? Cats are not indigenous in Australia and apparently a bit of a plague? Still, kinda weird to sell them as rugs…Anyway, back to cuteness!! In the park we spotted the cutest koala so far:Haha they are so awesome!! We headed back with the ferry to Adelaide after this, and that was our last full day in Australia. Woooow!
