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.

During the last couple of months, several of my projects have moved to the next stage.  

One of these is the work we have done with the Native Vegetation Management Local Advisory Board (LAB).

This Board was appointed in early 2017, and has met regularly to establish the issues relating to the management of native vegetation.

Some of the key concerns raised by Board members included scattered trees, roadside vegetation management, and accessibility of information on clearing regulations.
