Kangaroo Island is the third-largest island in Australia, and is an unspoilt sanctuary of flora and fauna, wildlife, and adventure. It was also recently been named by Conde Nast as the second-best island in the world.

It’s a short 45-minute cruise from the mainland, just southwest of Adelaide and taking your own car with caravan or camper trailer is one of the best ways to discover this enormous island escape and all its hidden gems.

“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,” says SeaLink’s South Australian Marketing Manager, Julie-Anne Briscoe.

“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.”

There really is something for everyone on Kangaroo Island, too. From spectacular coastal scenery, pristine beaches, stunning landscapes, fascinating wildlife, mouth-watering food and wine, and many other attractions.

There’s no shortage of cellar doors either. You can visit 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 a sip (or two) of its award-winning gin.

There are wildlife encounters at every corner. Sea Lions frolic on the beach at Seal Bay Conservation Park. See kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and other nocturnal wildlife at Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park and experience the fantastic Birds of Prey show at Raptor Domain.

Feel like a little adventure? Try sandboarding at Little Sahara Sand Dunes, quad biking at KI Outdoor Action, swimming with dolphins or check out the stunning rockpool and pristine beach via a secret path at Stokes Bay.

With a plethora of 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, KI has no shortage of accommodation options. All sites are powered, and facilities can include picnic and BBQ areas, camp kitchens, walking tracks and self-contained villas. Council-run caravan parks also operate on Kangaroo Island.
