Birding Kangaroo Island

Birding on Kangaroo Island is remarkably easy. Over 260 species of birds have been recorded and many are easily found.

There are shorebirds to watch against backdrops of magnificent coastal scenery, bush birds alongside amazing wildlife and Glossy-black Cockatoos and Little Penguins in some of the townships. There are hides at American River, Kingscote and Duck Lagoon and viewing platforms at a number of beaches and in KI's many conservation and national parks. From the ferry as you cross to and from the island, seabirds are usually visible and from May to October you might have the added bonus of spying a Southern Right Whale.
