Kangaroo Island, Australia's third largest island, is located 70 miles southwest of Adelaide and is easily accessible by ferry or plane.   The island has 318 miles of coastline, is 96 miles from east to west, 34.5 miles at its widest point and .6 miles at its narrowest.  The island has a population of 4,237 and the main towns are Kingscote, Penneshaw, Parndana and American River.   The best way to experience Kangaroo Island is to go on a tour.  People come to Kangaroo Island because it is one of the best places in Australia to see the widest range of Australian native animals in the wild:  Kangaroo Island Kangaroos, Tammar Wallabies, Brushtail and Little Pygmy Possums, Short Beaked Echidnas, Southern Brown Bandicotts, Little Penguins, Sooty Dunnarts, Bush and Swamp Rats, six bat species, six frog species, Goannas, Black Tiger Snakes, Pygmy Copperhead, Australian Sea Lions, Australian and New Zealand Fur Seals, koalas and the elusive platypus.  You will be able to see the sea lions and the fur seals, but since many of the animals are nocturnal and live in the wild, it's best to plan on spending either one or two nights on the island to better your chances of experiencing the wildlife on this island.   Going with a guide who knows the island also enhances your chances.  The main reason to come to Kangaroo Island is to experience Australian wildlife in a natural setting.   Below are some photos of the animals you might see while touring K.I.
