Tourists who want to get close to nature on holidays to Australia should visit Kangaroo Island, one journalist has advised.

 Those who have booked flights to Australia may find that paying a visit to Kangaroo Island offers the perfect opportunity for holidaymakers to be at one with the region’s wildlife.

Andrew Jefford, writing for the Financial Times, explains that the third-largest island in the country lies just ten miles from the south Australian coast.

“It’s beautiful, unspoiled, remote and teeming with wildlife: a one-visit synopsis of the southern shore of the continent,” he states.

Mr Jefford advises that the island has an “intimate feel” and is often referred to as Australia’s Galapagos for the abundance of species that are found in the area.

The South Australian Tourism Commission suggests that visitors to the island would be wise to marvel at the amazing land formations within the 33,000-hectare Flinders Chase National Park.

Meanwhile, animal lovers may wish to check out the beautiful sealions basking in the sun at the Seal Bay Conservation Park.
