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.

Quiz Night & Fundraiser Loads of Fun

Thursday, 23 March 2017

The Quiz night/fundraiser to aid the Year 7 students was held last week at the Ozone Hotel, and the night provided much more than anyone imagined.

For a start, 75 people attended, which was great, and everyone had come to win.  Amid much noise and laughter, quiz-master Wendy Campana tried to keep order ... and with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, the Hon. Tony Smith present, there was much encouragement from the side-lines, with "Order, Order, Order" being the ‘order’ of the day.

During the night, Wendy kept a semblance of order, moving on to auction items, raffles and table prizes, and the community really showed its support, with the night raising more than $4,500, including $500 each committed by Rebekha Sharkie MP, KI Council and the Commissioner’s office.
