The spectacular scenery and abundant wildlife are amongst the top tourist attractions on beautiful Kangaroo Island off the Fleurieu Peninsula in South Australia. Kangaroos laze in the paddocks and koalas sit in the Bluegum trees on the Koala Walk at Hanson Bay Wildlife Sanctuary near Flinders Chase National Park.
Sea lions sun themselves on the beach at Seal Bay while their pups frolic in the crystal-clear waters. The Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch in Flinders Chase National Park are popular tourist destinations to see these magnificent natural features of the island. The walking and hiking trails through Flinders Chase National Park along the mighty sea cliffs and in the pristine scrubland are a must if you like to explore on foot! The fastest, cheapest and most fun way to get to Kangaroo Island is with the new fast ferry operator, Kangaroo Island Connect (kic) for $25 each way.
Kangaroo Island Connect operates daily between Cape Jervis on the mainland and Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. If you’re arriving in Adelaide by plane, you can hire a car for $45/day and drive through the Fleurieu Peninsula to Cape Jervis (and not pay for it while you are on Kangaroo Island!) At Penneshaw you can pick up a Kangaroo Island Connect hire car to explore the island at your own pace and preferences. Book your Ferry and Car Hire at www.kic.com.au and head to Kangaroo Island!
