Many wonderful places in the world truly amaze imagination. Most of them are man-made. However, the real surprise is caused by the places that nature has created. These places can be easily attributed Kangaroo Island in Australia.
Due to the closed ecosystem that developed far from the rest of the continents, the flora and fauna of modern Australia has unique forms and appearance. This is interesting to watch, especially for those who love solitude with nature. Finally, the island has excellent sandy beaches, and picturesque bays, where anyone can find a more familiar holiday.
How to get to Kangaroo Island
Getting to the Kangaroo Island will not make you much difficulty. This can be done in several ways. The starting point to the island will be the city of Adelaide, from where airplanes and a ferry depart to the island daily. As for the flight, then everything is simple – you buy tickets for the flight and after 40 minutes, you are on the spot. Ferry is also quite a popular method, but it is fraught with some difficulties. Firstly, this method is highly dependent on weather conditions. In addition, if the weather is unfavorable, the ferry flight will be canceled and you will have to return tickets, cancel hotel reservations and adjust the vacation plan. Secondly, the ferry trip is not suitable for those who suffer from motion sickness. In any case, choose the way that will be convenient only for you.
