Self drive to Kangaroo Island
Driving to Kangaroo Island takes 1.5 hour from Adelaide to Cape Jervis through the Fleurieu Peninsula (107km). Allowing 2 hours from Adelaide prior to your scheduled departure will allow you plenty of time to take a break and not be in a rush. There are car parking options at the ferry pier but if you’re staying on Kangaroo Island for more than 72 hours we suggest parking at the kic Service Centre located within the Cape Jervis Accommodation & Caravan Park.
Hire a car and drive to Kangaroo Island
Kangaroo Island Connect is the only company that offers a continuous car hire service between Adelaide and Cape Jervis and on Kangaroo Island. This allows you to collect your car in Adelaide and leave your kic hire car at Cape Jervis, travel on the kic ferry, then continue your car rental in another kic rental car at Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. On your return to the mainland, you can pick up a rental car at Cape Jervis for your onward journey. (You will not be required to pay rental days for the kic car at Cape Jervis while you are on Kangaroo Island).
