Kangaroo Island the third largest island in Australia is an unspoilt sanctuary of flora and fauna, wildlife, and adventure. Located southwest of Adelaide and only a short 45-minute cruise from the mainland, one of the best ways to discover this enormous island escape and all its hidden gems is by caravan or camper trailer.


According to SeaLink's South Australian Marketing Manager, Julie-Anne Briscoe, “Kangaroo Island is a popular escape for families and retirees who make up the majority of people towing caravans and camper trailers to the island.”


“Kangaroo Island is so big that a few days is simply not enough. You really need a week or longer to explore and experience everything the island offers. It’s so easy and cost effective to do in a caravan or camper trailer, so it’s of no surprise that Kangaroo Island is a leading destination for caravanning and camper trailer holidays.”


“Winter is also such a great time to visit. Kangaroo Island is lovely and green, there is so much wildlife around - seal pups, joey kangaroos and wallabies and the island has a Mediterranean climate, so winter is mild and with minimal frosts.” Continues Ms Briscoe.


From spectacular coastal scenery, pristine beaches, stunning landscapes, fascinating wildlife, mouth-watering food and wine and many attractions, there is so much to see on Kangaroo Island that there really is something for everyone.


Explore a variety of cellar doors including Dudley Wines, False Cape Wines, Bay of Shoals Wines, Spring Road Wines and Islander Estate Wines Cellar Door and stop in at Kangaroo Island Spirits for their award-winning gin. 


Kangaroo Island is a sanctuary for wildlife, and 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 show at Raptor Domain.


For the more adventurous, enjoy sandboarding at Little Sahara Sand Dunes, quad biking at KI Outdoor Action, go swimming with dolphins and discover the stunning rockpool and pristine beach via a secret path at Stokes Bay.


Kangaroo Island has many privately owned caravan parks ranging from foreshore parks in Kingscote and Penneshaw to natural bushland settings in the centre of the island at Parndana and at the western end adjacent the Flinders Chase National Park.  All sites are powered and facilities at some parks include everything from picnic and BBQ areas to camp kitchens, walking tracks and self-contained villas. Council run caravan parks also operate on Kangaroo Island.


SeaLink car and passenger ferries operate daily departures from Cape Jervis to Kangaroo Island return. SeaLink’s caravan and camper trailer deal is on sale until 14 September 2021 and valid for travel from 15 May to 15 September 2021.  Just quote CARAVAN21 when booking to receive this fantastic deal.
