National parks

The nat­ur­al, rugged beau­ty of Kan­ga­roo Island (KI) is pre­served through a sys­tem of nation­al and con­ser­va­tion parks that cov­er almost one third of the island. The parks con­serve beau­ti­ful nat­ur­al envi­ron­ments home to a huge range of wildlife.

There are so many things to see and do in the nation­al parks of KI. They pre­serve the island’s most pre­cious and most notable nat­ur­al assets, includ­ing the must see nat­ur­al won­ders of Remark­able Rocks and Admi­rals Arch.
