I’m not sure they’ve done the maths here because they’re offering savings of up to $150 per family, where kids aged three to 14 years can travel on the ferry for free!* This is a massive bonus for parents and it also means you’ll have extra moolah to splash on holiday fun, food and experiences.
Kangaroo Island is just a swift 45-minute ferry ride from Cape Jervis to Penneshaw. As soon as you step off this comfy-as vessel, you’re greeted with spectacular coastal scenery, gorgeous wildlife, incredible wineries and eateries, unique accommodation and, of course, loads of nature experiences for the whole family to enjoy.

You won’t be starved for a place to stay either. There are hundreds of accommodation options across the island — from fancy five-star retreats complete with your own private beach to comfy holiday homes, cabins, glamping and family bell tents, caravan parks, motels and hotels with family apartments.

Let’s be honest, with kids in tow, holidays can’t always be about lazing about on white sandy beaches, so thank goodness Kangaroo Island has a smorgasbord of fun things to see and do, like fishing, crabbing off the jetty, swimming and snorkelling at some of the world’s most glorious beaches, climbing the Cape Willoughby Lighthouse and just running amok in general. And there’s plenty more along the way…
SEAL BAY CONSERVATION PARK
When was the last time your child met a sea lion in the wild? Seal Bay Conservation Park offers guided beach tours where you can see Australian sea lions as they sleep, play and swim in their own environment.
KANGAROO ISLAND WILDLIFE PARK
Here you can get up close and personal with kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and see all manner of native Australian wildlife — there’s over 600 animals!
This has thrills written all over it! You can enjoy the ‘Birds of Prey’ show and even meet and greet the stars of the show — Jedda the majestic wedge-tailed eagle and Casper the friendly barn owl.
