Kangaroo Island is a great family-friendly holiday location that suits all ages, so get booking and find out just what this incredible island has to offer!
To get to Kangaroo Island from Adelaide, you will need to head down the coast from Adelaide first, driving along the beautiful Fleurieu Penisula. This drive takes about 1 hr 30 minutes, so make sure you give yourself enough time. We suggest about 3-4 hours so you can enjoy a stop or two along the way. The Sealink ferry departs from Cape Jervis and takes about 45 minutes. Ferry’s leave regularly and you can find the timetable and prices on the Sealink website. Pre-booking tickets is a good idea and will remove any stress of last minute problems. KI is quite a big place, with lots of national park, so it’s recommended you do a self-drive, particularly if you have younger kids. Sealink ferrys accommodate for cars, just make sure you book your car on beforehand!
Kids in Adelaide acknowledges the Ngarrindjeri, Ramindjeri, Narrunga and Kaurnapeople, the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Kangaroo Island and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
