Kangaroo Island

  Some things never change regardless of when you go on your Kanagaroo Island holiday in Australia. 

  Friendly people, cool breezes, uncrowded beaches and geological wonders are on offer which ever time of year you choose to go. This truly makes a Kangaroo Island holiday in Australia appealing at any time of the year. Each season in Kangaroo Island does however offer give new life to the area and there are spectacular changes in landscape colours to experience.

  As the summer approaches, wildlife retreat to bush land to shelter during the heat of the day. The land is a contrast of golden pastures against summer wild flowers and the new growth of native trees. Kangaroos and Tammar wallabies are seen predominantly at dawn and dusk. Little penguins moult all their feathers at the end of the breeding season and can lose up to half their body weight. New Zealand Fur seals give birth to chocolate-brown pups and the Australian Sea-lion breeding season begins with pups born from January to June. Heath goannas lay 10-17 eggs in the warm, stable, humid atmosphere of termite mounds which act as a perfect incubator. Koalas, wallabies and kangaroos give birth to tiny young, which are naked and blind.

  Pastures begin to green and waterways and catchments begin to flow. Autumn is a time of transition, with some rainfall gradually providing the wildlife with fresh growth to feed on. Glossy Black cockatoos and Little Penguins begin nesting and black swans begin their courtship behaviour of wing-raising, neck-stretching and loud trumpeting. You will see fungi start to appear on damp ground and rotting wood.

  Winter is spectacular with lush green countrysides, flowing rivers and abundant wildlife: it's Kangaroo Island at its most appealing. Nocturnal land mammals who are predominantly night, dawn and dusk feeders for most of the year, frequently come out by day. Koalas emerge from the mother's pouch and begin to ride on her back and kangaroo and wallaby joeys start to emerge from the mother's pouch and feed by her side.   Echidnas form 'mating trains' where up to eight males will follow a female for around four weeks. See waders, on their migration from Siberia, as they begin to arrive and experience ospreys as they show off to their mates in spectacular courtship fights. Southern right whales pass the shores on their migration from Antarctic waters to the Great Australian Bight to calve.

  Spring is the season of rebirth. It is a wonderful time to see the spectacular array of wild flowers, birds and mammals. There are approximately 40 endemic floral species found on Kangaroo Island and these are seen in abundance during the spring. Eucalyptus oil is in peak production as one tonne of leaf can produce up to 30 litres of oil.
