Kangaroo Island, the third largest island in Australia behind Tasmania and Melville Island, is located southwest of Adelaide and only a short 45-minute cruise from the mainland.
It’s a year-round destination but this Winter, the caravanning community has even more incentive to plan a KI trip with SeaLink’s offer of free return passenger ferry transfers for two people who book their car and caravan or camper trailer on a Kangaroo Island SeaLink ferry.
You can save up to $196 on you holiday if you quote CARAVAN19 when you book.
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 to see and experience everything the island offers. You really need a week or longer to explore and discover the magic of the island. It’s so cost effective and easy to do this in 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 frost.” Continues Ms Briscoe.
From spectacular coastal scenery, stunning landscapes, pristine beaches, fascinating wildlife, and many attractions, there is so much to see on Kangaroo Island that there really is something for everyone.
Couples and retirees can explore a variety of cliff top wineries and take in the picturesque views, sample Gin at Kangaroo Island Spirits, experience amazing wildlife encounters with Sea Lions at Seal Bay and see kangaroos, koalas and other native animals at Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park.
Families can go sandboarding at Little Sahara Sand Dunes, experience the fantastic Birds of Prey shows at Raptor Domains, swim with the dolphins, try a delicious serve of honey ice cream from Clifford’s Honey Farm or Island Beehive and even discover a hidden, sandy beach via a secret path at Stokes Bay.
Kangaroo Island has four 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 a caravan park at the western end of the island next to the Flinders Chase National Park and popular attractions Admirals Arch and Remarkable Rocks.
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, with some situated in the national parks
SeaLink’s caravan and camper trailer deal is on sale until 14 September 2019 and valid for travel until 15 September 2019.
SeaLink car and passenger ferries operate daily departures from Cape Jervis to Kangaroo Island return.
