Kangaroo Island, like most of South Australia has a Mediterranean climate - although slightly more temperate. Summers are warm with cool evenings and winter is often a little warmer than the mainland. From March to June, the weather is often spectacular with long, balmy days and calm seas.
Be sure to take warm, layered clothing in the winter months of June through to September. At any time however, comfortable, casual clothing is the order of the day. Evening dining in any of the island’s restaurants or bistros is a relaxed experience, so neat, casual clothing is very acceptable.
If you plan to do some walking, take some boots or sturdy shoes and at all times, hats and sunscreen are recommended. A reasonable degree of fitness is required to enjoy some attractions on some of the marked and unmarked bush trails. Attractions such as Seal Bay, Admiral’s Arch and Remarkable Rocks now feature walking tracks and boardwalks to protect both you and the fragile ecosystems.
