Getting Around Kangaroo Island

There are so many fantastic places to see on Kangaroo Island and one of the best ways to experience our splendid scenery is to self-drive. 

You can take your own car to Kangaroo Island by ferry or hire a car when you get there.

Exploring Kangaroo Island by car is a wonderful way to travel the 1,600 Kilometers of roads which take you through the major townships. You can expect the majority of our main roads to be sealed,
principally those linking Penneshaw, American River, Kingscote, Parndana and Flinders Chase National Park.

If you wish to go bush, you are welcome to travel on our unsealed roads leading you to tucked away beaches,
natural wildlife habitats and special destinations.

For those who wish to sit back, relax and be guided through the beautiful terrain on Kangaroo Island, there are many tour options available. For instance, you can take tailored tours that include major attractions, lighthouses, wildlife, extreme adventuring, food and wine, heritage and history, boating and fishing, cycling, bush walking and much more!
