On This Day . . .
On February 16, 2018, we anchored just off of Kangaroo Island, 112 km (70 mi) southwest of Adelaide. As one of the world’s last unspoiled wilderness places, about 30 percent of the island has been designated as National Park.
We tendered into the town of Penneshaw, to take a tour around the island. The landscape is very different from other areas of Australia, with low hills and many “thin leaf eucalyptus” trees dotting the hillsides. The paved road gave way to gravel roads that needed some work. One of our stops was the Cape Willoughby Lighthouse, and the surrounding area which is home to many kangaroos.
We then went to Antechamber Bay and a short walk to the beach. The sand was very fine and powdery. Beautiful views here too, with views of Cape Jervis which was across the strait on the main land.
