Where Kangaroo Island??

Kangaroo Island is the 3rd largest island off the coast of Australia. 155km long & up to 55km wide with an area 4500 square kilometres.

You'll need a car to get around the island and some of them could be a long dirve on the dirt road!! And remember to fill up your tank before setting out to the wilderness, ELSE... (see Transportation tip no. 2)

Getting there

Ferries operate from Cape Jervis on the mainland to Penneshaw. Coach connections are available from Adelaide to Cape Jervis, and Penneshaw to American River and Kingscote. **Bookings are essential for ferry and coach connections.

Flinders Chase National Park

Flinders Chase National Park located at the western end of Kangaroo Island - breathtaking coastal landscapes, vast areas of wilderness and diversity of wildlife. Here you'll find the international attractions of Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks.

Flinders Chase Visitor Centre opens from 9am to 5pm daily except Christmas Day. Day visitors to the park are requested to leave by sunset.
