Your Kangaroo Island overnight tour from Adelaide begins by traveling to the island with either a ferry ride or flight. When booking, you have four transport options to suit your interest and budget—travel both ways ferry, both ways by plane, or mix it up to enjoy both experiences with one way by ferry and the other by plane, or vice versa.
When you reach the island, you have two days to soak up its wilderness delights. Visit natural landmarks like the Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch, spot wildlife at Seal Bay, enjoy the coastal scenery of Flinders Chase National Park and much more. One night of accommodation is included in a sea-view hotel room with a full cooked breakfast; both lunches are also provided. See the Itinerary for more details.
