Building a positive and prosperous future for Kangaroo Island businesses and families.



Business Kangaroo Island is an incorporated body, with a Constitution and a Charter


The aim of Business Kangaroo Island is to further the economic development and prosperity of Kangaroo Island businesses, we see our group as a voice for all businesses. 


We will be a positive advocate for the future direction and opportunities on Kangaroo Island.  The power of Business Kangaroo Island will be in the number of supporters (members) we have – the greater the number the bigger the voice.


Our membership base currently has representatives from:


  • Real Estate

  • Motor Trades

  • Hardware & Specialty stores

  • Fuel outlets

  • Earthmovers

  • Builders & Allied Trades

  • Hotels & Pubs

  • Accommodation providers

  • Banks

  • Developers

  • Tourism Operators

  • Media

  • Education & Health Professionals

  • Agricultural producers (Sheep/Cattle/Grain/Poultry/Pigs)

  • Fisheries & Aquaculture

  • Beauty & Fitness

  • Café’s & Restaurants

  • Vineyards & Wineries

       and more!


Business Kangaroo Island has developed a logo which represents the all local businesses on Kangaroo Island, along with the significant networking and interaction between those businesses.

We want to keep our members informed on developments so that the concerns of the ‘doubters’ can be addressed, and the correct information dispersed, to provide a positive voice and encourage investment on Kangaroo Island.

In short we aim to provide Business News, Business Views & Business Benefits; since our incorporation in early 2015 we are working to continually develop these concepts and over the years hope to continue to represent all business on Kangaroo Island becoming a peak business body.

Business Kangaroo Island received some initial seed funding (to help with establishment) from the Kangaroo Island Futures Authority with the support of the Hon. John Rau MP. We were very grateful for this funding, however we also must acknowledge that this funding came with no strings attached and that Business Kangaroo Island will always remain an independent body, representing the views of its members; the businesses of Kangaroo Island. 

Finally I would like to invite all Kangaroo Island businesses to become a member, and work collaboratively with us to create a positive and prosperous future for Kangaroo Island.
