Wildlife Wonderment, Part 2: Kangaroo Caper

A Honeymoon Series

facebook.com/southernoceanlodge

Planning any party, especially a wedding, can bring on some stress. But instead of looking to "unwind" in the typical way, some couples opt to put a little adventure in their first vacation as newlyweds. We recently began our "Wildlife Wonderment" honeymoon series highlighting locales picked by New Orleans Bride magazine travel editor Becca Hensley. 

Last month we headed to the Amazon and this wee were are going "down under" to the awe-inspiring Kangaroo Island.

Kangaroo Caper

When Kangaroo Island broke from southern Australia’s mainland 12,000 years ago, it isolated a slew of native plants and animals. Thriving now without threat from introduced predators or disease in this protected park region, this dramatic landscape boasts unique species that differ from those found on the mainland — such as the endangered glossy black-cockatoo, a sub-species of the western grey kangaroo and the sooty dunnart — a small, carnivorous marsupial. A habitat for sea lions, fur seals, wallabies, koalas, echidnas, platypuses, goanna lizards, bandicoots and 243 species of birds, this Eden ensures animal interaction. Based at Southern Ocean Lodge, an eco-hotel poised on a cliff above the sea. Their concierges can organize a face-to-face kangaroo happy hour and wildlife tours galore. southernoceanlodge.com.au
