We love Kangaroo Island, but for the safety of the lovely residents, please don’t travel there until it’s safe to do so.

South Australians need to support South Australians, now more than ever. With Kangaroo Island only a 45 minute ferry ride away, you can go for the day, or stay and play for as long as your heart desires. The Island is outrageously resilient and as the people and businesses continue to rebuild, it’s only becoming even more spectacular as a holiday destination. So, do what we did, pack your bags, bring your credit card and head to KI to #BookThemOut!

Here’s our Adelady Kangaroo Island #BookThemOut Tour

Seafront Eco Glamping Tents

Overlooking magnificent Hog Bay and a stone’s throw from the Sealink Ferry, you’ll find a brand new addition to Kangaroo Island Seafront Holiday Park… six four-and-a-half star luxury eco tents and they are ALL wonderful! 

Surrounded by native bushland, Seafront Eco Glamping Tents offers its own unique glamping experience, where each tent has been decorated in a different theme. You can wake up in Morocco, on an African Safari, in a Luxe Boho tent, a Coastal Odyssey, or in a world first, an iconic Kangaroo Island tent. All tents feature a private three-metre deck, fully-tiled ensuite bathroom, mini bar, a deluxe four-layered queen bed, reverse-cycle air conditioning and espresso coffee machine. Glampers can also pre-order a brekky hamper full of freshly made croissants, orange juice, condiments and everything you need to kickstart your Kangaroo Island adventure. 

Penneshaw Hotel

With a recent refurbish, the “Penny Hotel” is looking FABULOUS! The views from the alfresco area are to die for and you can even see mainland Australia on the horizon!  In terms of filling the belly, you can of course enjoy their traditional pub menu with classic parmies and delicious fish and chips, but if you want to eat like an Adelady, you’ll order one of their amazing grazing paddles, full of local cheeses, fruits, meats, garlic bread and the freshest seafood! 

Kangaroo Island Outdoor Action

Adrenalin junkies and lovers of all things “fun”, allow us to show you a thrill like no other… Kangaroo Island Outdoor Action! Brenton and his team of adventure-seeking champions offer all kinds of activities, from sand-boarding, kayaking, fat biking, guided walking tours and even buggie and quad tours across rugged terrain, dunes, and long stretches of untouched beach. It’s the best way to explore Vivonne Bay! Book on their website HERE

Kangaroo Island Brewery

Have a drink with everyone’s mate, Mike! Mike is the legend behind Kangaroo Island Brewery and he definitely brings the vibe and the fun to this awesome venue. Everything is hand-crafted and brewed on site (you can view the magic happen through their glass viewing window) and even the building itself was made with Mike’s two hands! But, it’s not just all about the hops, it’s the experience also. The property is gigantic so you can kick back in the hammocks overlooking paddocks as far as the eye can see… or, you can bring a picnic hamper and rug with you and set up shop for the day in front of the brewery. Anything goes at KIB! 

Kangaroo Island Ocean Safari

This is a must-do experience when visiting this wonderful island. Ocean Safari tours depart from Christmas Cove Marina in Penneshaw, just a one minute drive from the Sealink Ferry.  They offer all kinds of fun ocean tours, from 2 hour swims with seals and dolphins (we did this last year and it was BRILLIANT), dolphin tours, snorkelling, and even 75 minute coastal tours. They also offer small personalised tours, of up to 12 people and family, group or private charters are available upon request. Just call our mate Tony to enquire, 0419 772 175!
