This is an update from our Kangaroo Island trip, as we are currently packing up the car in preparation to head to the Flinders Ranges this afternoon. Wifi might be limited over the next few weeks, so I thought I would post this while I could!!
Sitting in the YHA on our final night in Kangaroo Island, it is teeming down with rain and we are contemplating how to find something for dinner, but this is most unlike the rest of the trip,where we have camped and provided our own camp cooked meals, prepared our own lunches, while spending some enjoyable days exploring this diverse island.
What has struck me most has been the abundance of wildlife which we have been lucky to spot while out and about, but also at the campsite each evening. At last count we had 2 echidnas, 2 koalas, wallabies, kangaroos, seals, sealions and numerous birds including pelicans, magpies and wrens to name a few.
The landscape has impressed, as I hoped it would ranging from coastal cliffs to wide open sandy beaches, tree-lined roads appearing from no-where as if entering a portal of different landscapes while driving along the variety of roads that cross the island and connect the main towns and attractions. We have covered quite a bit of the Flinders Chase National park, including a bumpy 26k down to Cape Borda, to see the smallest of the lighthouses on the island. The next day we walked down on the beach at Seal Bay to see the seals basking in the sun and today, we had lunch at American River at a river-side café serving simple but tasty fare while we watched the swans and pelicans and the boats bobbing in awaiting the pending rain.
These are a few of the images that we have captured from our 4 great days on Kangaroo Island. Follow our Facebook page and Website to keep up with the latest news and images 🙂
