Depart from Adelaide
Take the surreal 1.5 hour journey from Adelaide through the Fleurieu Peninsula and onward to the SeaLink ferry terminal at Cape Jervis for a splendid 45 minute cruise to Penneshaw. You could find your boat cruising along side seals and dolphins as they surf the wake. And in the winter season you may even be lucky enough to spot the giant and elusive Humpback Whale bursting through the surface of the ocean from any of the Kangaroo Island Beaches.
Wine and Fresh Produce
Kangaroo Island is no stranger to its South Australian forte and delivers the finest drops of wine and caters its own exquisitely nourishing fresh produce. The island hosts a spectacularly diverse ecosystem, making it home to Australia’s most iconic animals, including koalas, wallabies, and of course kangaroos! The opportunities to experience the island’s wildlife comes to no end and the chance for thrilling activities are scattered all over this marooned haven. Plummet down pristine sand dunes and sand board at The Little Sahara, and hike through Flinders Chase National Park to view the thriving wildlife as you connect to nature.
