About Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island, situated off the coast of South Australia, is unique in terms of its pristine environment, abundance of native wildlife and spectacular natural attractions, making it the jewel in the crown for the State's tourism and premium, fresh local food and wines.


The Commissioner for Kangaroo Island will focus her work on a number of projects that have been identified as crucial to delivering lasting prosperity and benefits to Kangaroo Island residents.

Some of these projects will lead to improvements in the short term, while others will take longer for the benefits to be fully realised.

The KI Community and Business Expo held in Kingscote last week was a great success, opened by Leon Bignell MP, Minister for Tourism, with 28 exhibitors and more than 150 people attending.  

The Expo provided an opportunity for businesses and the community to engage with developers, KI industry associations, state government and some Island businesses which are expanding.

Also on that day, my Local Advisory Board on Economic Development met.  Minister Bignell attended and addressed the Board and thanked them for their work.  There were two presentations – one from SA Power Networks on the replacement undersea cable and the other from SA Water, with an update on the water plan for the Island.
