Your Self Drive Adventure
Day 1 - Kangaroo Island (110 km)
Leave the leafy terraces of Adelaide and drive south towards Cape Jervis, the mainland departure point for the 45 minute ferry journey over to the quaint seafront town of Penneshaw on Kangaroo Island. The island shows nature at its wildest, combining beautiful coastal seascapes, clear sea bays, and the native fauna and flora.
Spend the next three days exploring the 500 kilometres of coastline, from the sea lion littered beach at Seal Bay to the rugged surf beaches in the south. A visit to the Flinders Chase National Park to view the Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch is a must.
Standard: Kangaroo Island Seafront
Deluxe: Aurora Ozone Hotel, 1 bedroom apartment
