If you want to spend your vacation on a beautiful island, Australia has more than eight thousand islands. This means that you can have any possible type of experience during your vacation, because these islands cover everything you can dream of.
Here are my top three islands to visit in Australia:
1. Kangaroo Island
2. Fraser Island
3. Maria Island
Kangaroo Island, South Australia
Kangaroo Island is an Australian island with more than 500 kilometers of coastline, native bushland, wild animals and pristine beaches with absolutely breathtaking scenery, and some of the best accommodation on Kangaroo Island.
This place has some of the best views and wildlife on the Australian continent. You can see a lot of kangaroos, fur seals, sea lions and koalas living their life in their natural habitat. This is a natural environment that has not been altered by man, with three great places that can make you understand how the locals are living: The Dudley Peninsula, Central and South Coast and Kingscote.
Besides beaches and wildlife, the place has historic lighthouses, dramatic cliffs, underground caves, amazing food, 18 wineries and even species exclusive to the island. You can reach the island either by ferry, or by direct flights from Adelaide. Kangaroo Island is popular among tourists because:
- There is a great variety of things to visit
- You can see wildlife in their natural habitat
- The beaches are spectacular
In my research, I have found that www.clubki.com.au has the best range of accommodation, villas, and self contained housing which will make your stay that much better!
Fraser Island, Queensland
Fraser Island is located in the western part of Australia and it is the largest sand island in the world (124 kilometers long). The island has more than one hundred freshwater lakes. There are forests that grow directly from the sand. The rough terrain offers you the opportunity to drive four wheel vehicles while you admire the amazing landscapes. The Island can be reached from multiple locations by ferries.
Fraser Island can make your vacation pleasant by offering the following:
- You can swim in freshwater (lakes) and saltwater (ocean)

Maria Island, Tasmania
Maria Island is not just a place that is wildlife abundant, but is also a sanctuary because it has many historical ruins and is the subject of many stories. This island is located off the east coast of Tasmania and can only be reached by ferry. You can visit the island by walking or cycling. If you want a stop on the beach, you will have a peaceful and colorful experience. The marine life is thriving in the area.
Maria Island is best known for the following features:
