Pristine beaches. Soaring cliffs. Breath-taking ocean sunsets. But there's more to Australia's best kept secret than the unspoiled picturesque landscapes.

Locals call it 'Ki'. Located 14km off South Australia's, Kangaroo Island is just two hours from the beautiful city of Adelaide. With abundant native flora and fauna thriving here, it is little wonder that Ki is surrounded by five marine sanctuaries and has one third of the land designated as national parks. The third largest island in Australia is also home to organic award-winning food and wine, and a spirited community of artists and farmers.
