Top Billing visits Kangaroo Island
Ryle continued his Australia trip after the Lifesaving World Championships by visiting the land that time forgot, Kangaroo Island.
The island was a part of mainland Australia roughly 16, 000 years ago, but was separated by rising sea levels and only discovered in 1902.
As a result it is isolated from invasive animals, so indigenous species like kangaroos, seals and koalas have been able to flourish, and attract many visitors every year.
Conservation efforts have been promoted by the government, and animals like the sea lions (which were nearly hunted in to extinction before) are now able to live in peace.
Other attractions include the amazing typography, such as the correctly-named Remarkable Rocks, the beautiful and naturally sculpted rocks that stand on a granite outcrop covered in red lichen.
Another attraction is the Admiral’s Arch, which boasts petrified tree roots that look like stalactites.
While the origin of the arch’s name is a mystery one thing is for sure, Kangaroo Island is every nature-lover’s dream!
