Getting a nod in Conde Nast Traveller magazine’s Reader’s Choice Awards is no small feat and two Australia Islands have been named amongst the best in the world.
Tasmania has earned the top spot in the Australia/Asia Pacific group with Kangaroo Island coming in second.
Kangaroo Island experienced a devastating bushfire season where almost half of the island was burned by wildfires in January and February.
Since then the island has revived much of its offerings and has been met with a flurry of local visitors.
Conde Nast Traveller stated that it’s “all about the outdoors on South Australia’s Kangaroo Island, an unspoiled 1,700-square-mile stretch teeming with native animals (there are 267 bird species alone).”
“There are also endangered sea lions to spot, spiky-backed echidnas, and the eponymous kangaroos sheltering under shrubs.”
