Share with them the pure air and clean water that makes Kangaroo Island one of the last unspoiled wonders of the world. The airport is located 12 km from Kingscote town centre.

Kingscote-Kangaroo Island Australia's third-largest island. A superb and fascinating wilderness mixed with a number of attractive small townships.
Located 110 km south-west of Adelaide and easily accessible by ferry, Kangaroo Island is one of the nation's supreme scenic spots.

Kangaroo Island is Australia's third largest island (after Tasmania and Melville Island) stretching 155 km from east to west, 55 km at its widest point, and containing nearly 1600 km of sealed and unsealed roads.

The island was first settled by Aborigines but their history is scant and complex. It seems they left the island about 3,000 years ago for reasons which remain unknown.

The first European to see the island was Matthew Flinders who, during his circumnavigation of Australia in the 'Investigator' in 1802, explored, charted and named the island.

Flinders and his crew killed 31 kangaroos and as he wrote "half a hundredweight of heads, forequarters and tails were stewed into soup...and as much steaks given....to both officers and men as they could consume by day and by night.... In gratitude for so seasonable a supply, I named this southern land Kangaroo Island ..." Flinders also named the strait between the island and the mainland declaring "It forms a private entrance, as it were, to the two gulphs; and I named it Backstairs Passage".
