Events in and around Kangaroo Island
Kangaroo Island, located in South Australia, Australia, is a popular tourist destination that offers a range of fun and exciting events throughout the year. From food festivals to outdoor adventures, there's always something happening on Kangaroo Island. Here are some of the best seasonal events that you shouldn't miss.
The summer months are the perfect time to explore the outdoors on Kangaroo Island. In January, the Kangaroo Island Cup is held at the Cygnet River Racecourse. This horse racing event is a favourite among locals and tourists alike and is often followed by live music, food, and wine celebrations. The summer is also the best time to witness the migration of the Southern Right Whales at Flinders Chase National Park.
In March, the Kangaroo Island Art Feast is held throughout the island. This is a month-long celebration of the arts that includes exhibitions, installations, and workshops. The event is an opportunity to see some of the best works of art on the island and meet the local artists.
Winter on Kangaroo Island is a great time to experience the island's wildlife. Between May and September, the seal pups are born, and visitors can take guided tours to see them up close. Visitors can also take part in the Kangaroo Island Winter Whale Trail, which is a self-guided road trip along the coastline to spot the migrating Humpback and Southern Right whales.
Spring is when the island comes alive with an abundance of wildlife and flora. In September, the Kangaroo Island Farmer's Market moves to a new location and offers an array of fresh produce, arts and crafts, and live entertainment. The Kangaroo Island Marathon is also held in September, which takes runners on a course that weaves through the stunning Flinders Chase National Park.
No matter what season you visit Kangaroo Island, there's always something happening. From food and wine festivals to outdoor adventures, the island offers a fantastic range of events.
