Fun Fact: Australia has 8,222 islands within its borders.
One of the biggest of these tropical islands is Kangaroo Island, which is a ferry ride away from Adelaide. It’s famous for its wildlife. On any given day, you’ll see koalas, dolphins, sea lions, dolphins, echidnas and kangaroos around the island. The landscapes are beautiful, too. As a landscape photographer, you could have a lot of fun capturing the many caves, cliffs and sand dunes, as well as Vivionne Bay and the wilderness of Flinders Chase National Park.
There are several lighthouses on the island, too, including Cape du Couedic (a photographer’s favourite), Cape Willoughby and Cape Borda. If you shoot one thing, make it the Remarkable Rocks. Best at sunrise, these granite boulders were shaped by the wind, sea spray and rain over the course of 500 million years. Otherwise, set up near Admirals Arch at sunset, and photograph the sun setting in between the natural bridge.
