American River - Kangaroo Island

American River

American River is the birthplace of tourism on Kangaroo Island and despite growing numbers flocking to its shores every year, it has remained a tranquil coastal town, perfect for wildlife watching and boating.

Grab a hot chocolate from The Deck Cafe and walk next door to see volunteers rebuilding the Independence - a schooner originally constructed by a crew of American sealers in 1803 from local timber. Also at the wharf is the Oyster Farm Shop. It showcases the island's first-class aquaculture industry and is a must for any seafood lover. Taste sustainably farmed oysters, green lip abalone, marron and loads of local fish species.

For birdwatchers, American River is a great place to get up close and personal with a thriving native bird population. Resident pelicans are fed every second morning in the front of Mercure Kangaroo Island Lodge, and this is where you can begin your journey on the interpretive trail - a walk around the lodge that will take you past the large she-oak trees home to the handsome and very boisterous flocks of endangered red tailed glossy black cockatoos.

American River is technically a sheltered ocean inlet, making it fantastic for fishing and boating. Jump on a guided boat tour with a local or rent your own kayak and explore the calm waters of American River.
