The climate of Kangaroo Island (Australia)
Kangaroo Island is an island off the coast of Adelaide on the south coast of Australia. The island was named after the slaughter of kangaroos when it was first discovered. The discoverer of the island fed his crew with these animals. The island is a big reserve for protected species. A true Mecca for nature freaks. You can go for long walks on the island and then come across koalas, kangaroos, platypuses and porcupines. During a walk along the beach in the Sea Bay Conservation Park you can run into large herds of sea lions. If you decide to watch a romantic sunset at Kingscote or Penneshaw you might be joined by a blue penguin. There are several national parks on this island in which you can see all of these animals. If you prefer a more active way of discovering the island the use of a mountain bike is suggested. Many ships sank off the south coast. This makes it a perfect wreck diving spot.
Kangaroo Island has a moderate sea climate. Temperatures are strongly influenced the year round by the tempering influence of the ocean. Temperatures in summer and winter are average. The winter from June to September is moist. The sea wind causes a lot of cloud.
