Australia’s Galapagos: Mistere Kangaroo Island is like nowhere else on Earth

June 14, 2019 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Kangaroo Island is a haven for Australia’s unique wildlife. Although only 150km long, it has garnered international recognition for its diverse landscapes, dense flora and fauna, and for its thriving wildlife. With plant and animal species found nowhere else on earth, Kangaroo Island is a natural oasis just waiting to be explored. See the menagerie of wildlife and the incredible flora and fauna of the island with Regal Retreats, Mistere Kangaroo Island.

Get to know the secrets of the island with these top facts:

1.      Seven times bigger than Singapore
While Kangaroo Island is only 150km long, it’s much bigger than it seems. Coming in as Australia’s third largest island (behind Tasmania and Melville Island), Kangaroo Island is about the same size as Australian capital city Canberra, and seven times the size of Singapore.

2.      Different Kangaroos
Kangaroo Island was given its name for a reason. There are plenty of kangaroos here. But due to their island isolation they are different from those on the mainland. The kangaroos of Kangaroo Island are known to have longer fur which is darker in colour.

3.      Melting pot of Australian wildlife
If an animal is associated with Australia, you can almost guarantee you’ll find it on Kangaroo Island. With kangaroos, tammar wallabies, koalas, echidnas, brush-tailed possums, black cockatoos, bottlenose dolphins, sea lions and seals (and so much more) all found on Kangaroo Island, you’ll be spoilt for wildlife viewing choice.

4.      Buzzing with excitement
Honey lovers unite – Kangaroo Island is home to the world’s last genetically pure population of Ligurian bees. The first sanctuary for this species of bee (and the oldest sanctuary in the world) was established in 1885.

5.      The Remarkable Rocks really are remarkable
The Remarkable Rocks are found on Kirkpatrick Point, and are one of the most breathtaking natural landmarks on the island. Their sculpted appearance and multi-tonal colouring make for an excellent photo op.

6.      Shipwrecks and dolphins
Ships sailing past the coastline of Kanagroo Island are not always so lucky. With 80 wrecks recorded since 1847, the shipwrecks of Kangaroo Island make for excellent diving sites. And if diving isn’t your thing, you can stay closer to the surface and swim with the dolphins.

7.      The island of conservation
Home to six conservation parks, Kangaroo Island is a sanctuary for the native wildlife and plant species of the island. The conservation parks make up about one-third of the island, showing just how dedicated Kangaroo Island is to the continued preservation and survival of its native inhabitants.

Base yourself at Regal Retreats Mistere Kangaroo Island to explore the natural wonders of the island. This eco-luxe accommodation offers panoramic views over the bay and lush surrounding farmland. The spacious three-room lodge is the perfect base for all your island adventures. And it’s well equipped. Tour the property and the beach front on a ‘wide tyre’ mountain bike, work up a sweat in the fully equipped ‘Mistere Active’ gym or swim laps in the saltwater infinity edge pool with a flowing illusion into Nepean Bay. You can even interact with the Mistere miniatures – the loveable horses, cows and donkeys who call the property home. And star-gazers and aspiring astronomers are sure to be in paradise at Mistere Kangaroo Island, where you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the night sky. Mistere Kangaroo Island isn’t just a place to stay, it’s an experience.

Prices for 2 nights starting at $980.
