Kagaroo Island

Kangaroo Island is 155km long, and 55km wide, it is the third largest island off the Australian mainland. Kangaroo Island was uninhabited when it was discovered in 1802 by Matthew Flinders (an English explorer) and approximately one third of the island still has native vegetation in it of which the majority is conserved in National and Conservation Parks.
