This island is about 155km and 55km wide. 3rd largest island of Australia which was discovered in 1802 by Matthew Flinders. Part of the island is conserved in National park and thus, making an ideal place to see wildlife.

Clean waters off kanger island are excellent for fishing and diving sites (abt 50 shipwrecks).
Traditional industries are wool, cereal crops and fishing. And of course, tourism is also an important industry on the island.

Places to visit on de island itself:
1) Seal Bay
2) Flinders Chase National park
3) Remarkable Rocks
4) Cape du Couedic Lighthouse
5) Admiral Arch
6) Rocky River
I took a day tour starting from 7am till 10.30pm.
Tour route is like this:
-Take a 2 hr coach from Adelaide to Cape Jervis (port).
-45mins of ferry ride to reach the island.

Total cost: AUST$181 per person.

Directions: 101, Franklin St, Adelaide.
