By Sea…

Kangaroo Island SeaLink operates two large, luxurious vehicle and passenger ferries, between Cape Jervis (approx. 2 hour drive from Adelaide on the Fleurieu Peninsula) and Penneshaw KI. There are four departures daily, with additional services during peak times. Bookings are necessary. Travelling time is a comfortable 45 minutes. Mainland coach connections are available to/from Adelaide and Goolwa to Cape Jervis. Island connections are available to/from Penneshaw to American River and Kingscote.

By Air…

Kangaroo Island is also serviced daily by air. The 30 minute flight operates between the main terminal at the Adelaide Airport and Kingscote KI Airport (which is located 14 kilometres from Kingscote; the main township on KI). Rex airlines is the carrier who operates these daily flights.

*If you are choosing to fly from Adelaide to Kangaroo Island, it is more economical and efficient to contact Sealink directly to book your flights with REX airlines.
