D'ESTREES BAY – CAPE GANTHEAUME CONSERVATION PARK
Take the self-guided drive which begins at the second boat ramp to discover a greater understanding of the natural and cultural history of D'Estrees Bay, the coastal habitats, birdlife, whaling, and farming history is quite amazing. The kids will love finding the next stop, and the exploring opportunities here are great fun.
Located on the furthest point at Vivonne Bay, Point Ellen is past the Vivonne Bay Jetty. Park at the car park at the end of Jetty Road, and if the weather is calm, take the path to the coast. There are some amazing rock pools, which you can explore, and if calm enough, swim in. Be careful, and always observe the kids here.
WESTERN RIVER COVE
The adventure begins with taking the drive over the massive rolling hills of Western River Cove. When you get there, take a walk over the footbridge along the riverbank to the sandy cove. It is one of the most spectacular locations on Kangaroo Island, and generally, you will be the only one there!
But do you know what? There are lots more than just 9 great free things to do on Kangaroo Island. There are so many beaches to explore, and each one is different. There are many walks and hikes, and there are lots of fishing locations. If you are planning on a camping trip, then we have all of the information for you. Have fun though, we always do.
