Foodies and wine-fiends are not forgotten with KI producing some of South Australia’s finest gourmet treats – something to do with all that fresh clean air!
Campers and caravanners can save up to $196 on travel between 15 May to 15 September 2020, with SeaLink offering free return ferry transfers for two people who book their car plus a caravan or camper trailer on a Kangaroo Island SeaLink ferry.
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.” 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.
Explore a variety of intimate wineries and soak up the picturesque views while enjoying the wines. Stop in at boutique distillery, Kangaroo Island Spirits, for some gin, vodka and liqueur tastings and savour the many amazing dining experiences from the chef-hatted restaurant Sunset Food and Wine, to a la carte restaurants the Zone Restaurant at the Ozone Hotel and Reflections Restaurant at the Mercure KI Lodge.
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 shows at Raptor Domains.
For the more adventurous, enjoy sandboarding at Little Sahara Sand Dunes, go swimming with the dolphins and even discover a hidden, sandy 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.
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.
