There’s a lot more to see on Kangaroo Island, South Australia, than just kangaroos. Sure, these are not in short supply, but other wildlife includes seals, sea lions, pelicans, penguins, raptors, snakes, wallabies and koalas among many other examples of Aussie wildlife.
However, you don’t want to miss out on the kangaroos, and one of the best ways to see them is to do a dusk tour by quad bike with KI Outdoor Action.
You’ll need your own vehicle to get there, as there is no public transport on the island, but cars can be hired if you book far enough in advance. Once you’ve arrived, though, the Outdoor Action team will sort you out with all the equipment and knowledge that you need to drive a quad bike through the dunes of Vivonne Bay — with kangaroo sightings guaranteed. Kangaroos are most active at dawn and dusk, so an evening tour is a great way to see them in action.
The Dusk Kangaroo Tour starts two hours before sunset, and riders receive a comprehensive lesson on how to use the bike before setting out. This will take between thirty and sixty minutes and you’ll get at least an hour on the bike. Almost anyone can join in, as there are smaller bikes available for kids as young as six, and if you’re not keen to ride you can go as a passenger in the larger guide vehicle.
