FAQ

What is the weather like?

Kangaroo Island has a Mediterranean climate: typically warm to hot dry summers (Dec/Jan/Feb) with very low humidity; and cool, mild winters (Jun/Jul/Aug). Our spring (Sep/Oct/Nov) and autumn (Mar/Apr/May) are true shoulder seasons where days can be more like winter or summer or something in between! Snow has never been recorded and slight frosts rarely occuring and then only in the central part of the Island. A majority of our rainfall occurs from April through September. Typical of islands, wind is a constant so be prepared for cool or even cold wind off the ocean any time of the year.
