The very word “Island” stirs thoughts of romance; thoughts of sea, surf and gleaming beaches.  Kangaroo island has all these attributes yet is only a short distance from Adelaide, South Australia.  The scenery is spectacular, the climate mild, the wildlife and wildflowers plentiful throughout the island and the local inhabitants, friendly and welcoming.  There are few unspoiled places such as Kangaroo Island.
