We visited the Kelly Hill caves.

Stella stood on an ants nest,
UP went the mites!
Lots of bites!

There is a tourist attraction called 'Raptor Domain'. It is pretty well done, and gave us a chance to get near to birds that are hard to see close-up in the wild.

Sea lions

The south coast of Kangaroo Island hosts colonies of both NZ fur seals, and Australian sea lions (which are a species of seal).

Here are some of the sea lions.
