About Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island is a highly sought after holiday destination and upon visiting it’s easy to see why. With an abundance of native wildlife, colourful sunsets, secluded beaches and rugged coastline that stretches on and on- what more could you ask for in your next adventure? 

A lot of visitors underestimate the size of the island and so the longer you can stay the better. Kangaroo Island Ocean Safari is conveniently located close to the ferry terminal and airport so if you wanted to visit just for the day it is possible to join us on safari. However, to explore other areas of the island you need to stay for at least a couple of days or more! 

To get to the island it is a short 30 minute flight from Adelaide airport or ferry’s depart from Cape Jervis ferry terminal multiple times a day. Coach services from Adelaide to Cape Jervis are available and the ferry takes approximately 45 minutes to get to the island from Cape Jervis. Bookings are essential.
