Fall in love with Kangaroo Island

After surviving devastating bushfires and COVID-19 travel restrictions, Kangaroo Island is ready to welcome tourists back.

Ferry operator, SeaLink South Australia, is making it even easier to visit this natural gem, thanks to their ‘KANGAROO ISLAND YOU’LL LOVE IT’ self-drive packages.

The new campaign includes a range of amazing self-drive packages from weekend getaways, bonus accommodation offers and discount vouchers to use at a variety of attractions, cafes, adventure activities and cellar doors around Kangaroo Island.

Now is the ideal time to visit Kangaroo Island as not only have regional travel restrictions been lifted in South Australia but the parts of Kangaroo Island that were affected by the bushfires are now regenerating and Mother Nature is really putting on a show.

What to see and do

A sanctuary for wildlife, there are wildlife encounters at every corner. See Sea Lions frolicking on the beach at Seal Bay Conservation Park, get up close and personal with kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and other nocturnal wildlife at Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park and experience the fantastic Birds of Prey presentation at Raptor Domain.
